An air-raid on 24 September 1917 caused considerable damage to the galleries in Burlington House. Money was received from the Government to assist with the repairs which were completed just in time for the preparation of the Summer Exhibition. A small tablet inserted in the doorway leading to Gallery IX commemorates the event.
