As some of the best known and loved paintings in the Royal Collection, the works in our exhibition Masterpieces from Buckingham Palace withstand the many tests of time – but how do such works survive the physical challenges time presents? What goes into making sure they can be enjoyed by audiences today – and for centuries to come? Join Masterpieces exhibition curator Isabella Manning and Paintings Conservator Claire Shepherd to explore how some of the greatest treasures of the Royal Collection are looked after, conserved and prepared, with a focus on works in the exhibition at The Queen’s Gallery, Edinburgh.

Please note, this event includes the option to view with auto-generated zoom captions.
