Our beloved Canaletto views have left the Wallace!


Last week our conservation team was busy ensuring the safe removal and transport of the two Canaletto views you’ve enabled us to conserve. They are now in Cambridge at the Hamilton Kerr Institute.

The HKI’s conservators will analyse the paintings, remove the yellow varnish and document the whole process. The curator of the project, Lelia Packer, intends to visit several times to follow their progress and discuss the treatments with conservators there.
