After The Flood

28 February 2021 - 18 April 2021

In May 2017, a devastating flood occurred in the Gallery basement. Four hundred and forty nine individual items from the Gallery's permanent collection were damaged, including paintings, paper works, gilt frames, oriental rugs, fibre works and a sculpture.

It is almost four years since this event. Apart from nine art works which were deemed irreparable, all art works damaged by the water have been repaired by various expert conservators. A selection of restored art works will be exhibited alongside images of the damaged works, taken immediately after the flood.

This exhibition consists of art works which have been restored to their former glory and celebrates the recovery of a national art collection from a major disaster.
