We have a team of freelance painting, paper, textile and frame conservators who help the Curator to care for the collections.
Our ongoing conservation programme helps to ensure that our works of art are displayed and stored in the best possible environment.
This includes adding glazing to all works on display in our Picture Gallery and monitoring the temperature and humidity levels in the gallery and in our stores.
We've recently completed a refurbishment project that added blinds and UV film to the windows in the gallery, and updated the lighting and heating. This has helped us improve the environment in the gallery which is within the Grade I listed Founder's building.
