Video: Art conservation project at Petworth House

Waiting for Video...

A MAJOR new conservation project is underway at Petworth House and Park - and these time lapse videos show how it was done.

This six-month project is among the most significant painting conservation treatments ever undertaken on behalf of the National Trust.

Sir Joshua Reynolds’ Macbeth and the Witches is often viewed as one of the ‘gloomiest’ and ‘dullest’ artworks in the collection.

Hanging prominently in the stately Square Dining Room, the conservation will be no small task.

The largest piece in the historic house and the largest and most expensive commission ever from the artist, The Witches conservation project will cost around £30,000 to complete.
