Conservation at Pallant House Gallery

Help us to protect vulnerable artworks, including our Vuillard, for future generations.

Saving the past for the future

Earlier this year Pallant House Gallery received Édouard Vuillard’s ‘Modèle assise dans un fauteuil, se coiffant’ (c.1903), a remarkable addition to the Gallery’s permanent collection. However, the fragile condition of the work means we need to swiftly put in place preventative conservation measures to protect it from further deterioration.

We see the care of our collections and conservation as one of our most important roles, ensuring works under our guardianship are cared for and maintained in conditions that preserve and extend their physical integrity for the enjoyment of audiences for years to come.

In practical terms, preventative conservation means putting procedures in place to slow deterioration, prevent damage and create optimum conditions to promote the longevity of works in the collection. This includes everything from correct handling; storage; display; environmental control and monitoring to emergency planning.

You too can play a role in preserving works like the Vuillard by helping us have the funds at the ready to respond quickly and effectively to the challenges of conservation.
