Creating the new Europe 1600–1800 Galleries

The V&A’s collection of 17th- and 18th-century European art and design is unrivalled in its range and quality. The Europe 1600–1800 Project will see the renovation, redisplay and reinterpretation of the seven prime galleries dedicated to this period. In this blog the Project Team will take you behind the scenes, providing an insight into the challenges, developments and discoveries involved in a major gallery project.
