New exhibition: A Great and Noble Design


With the campaign complete, we are now beginning preparation work in the Painted Hall prior to the conservation of the arch and the ceiling of the Painted Hall.

To coincide with the start of the project, an exhibition, A Great and Noble Design, is being held at the Stephen Lawrence Gallery in Greenwich and explores the life of the Painted Hall's mastermind, Sir James Thornhill.

Three newly-conserved original sketches by Thornhill for the Painted Hall are on display in the exhibition, alongside new research undertaken into the paintings in the light of the upcoming conversation work on the Painted Hall's ceiling. You can visit the exhibition until 28 October.
