Friends excursions: Government Art Collection
Come behind the scenes with Friends of the RA on this tour of the Government Art Collection.
For over 100 years, the Government Art Collection has collected works of art to be displayed in their buildings in London and around the world, in order to promote British art and artists.
Our tour takes us behind the scenes at their London headquarters to see a range of works and discover from a senior curator how the art is selected and conserved. In the conservation room we observe how works are protected from the range of climates they may encounter, and we also visit the store room where the rest of the collection is maintained.
