About the National Conservation Programme

Our National Conservation Programme, which is generously supported by the Aldama Foundation, enables us to research, preserve and enhance important paintings in publicly accessible collections across the country.

The programme helps to ensure that such collections without the resources to undertake conservation treatments can reach out to have their works considered for conservation by our team.

In this episode, Conservator Britta New, discusses one such project: the conservation of a 16th-century panel depicting the gory tale of 'The Judgement of Zaleucus', from the William Morris Gallery, Walthamstow.
