Conservation Case Studies: Building a Frame for The Virgin and Child by Carlo Crivelli
The 'Virgin and Child', by Carlo Crivelli, was acquired unframed by the Museum. It was decided to make a copy of a frame in the V&A collections in order to display the painting appropriately in the Medieval & Renaissance Galleries.
The Dr Susan Weber Gallery tells the story of furniture design and production spanning the past 600 years and displays more than 200 outstanding pieces, including chairs, tables, bureaux, stools, chests, cabinets and wardrobes. Designers such as Thomas Chippendale, Frank Lloyd Wright, Eileen Gray, Charles and Ray Eames, Tom Dixon and Ron Arad sit alongside lesser-known names all selected for their superior techniques.
