Our collections are constantly revitalised through new acquisitions. Recently, a travelling carriage has been donated to the National Trust’s Carriage Museum at Arlington Court, Devon and a 17th-century perspective painting by Hendrick van Steenwyck has returned to Ham House, Surrey. We look after over 300 historic buildings and nearly one million works of art, which need constant care to maintain them. You can help protect these important buildings and collections by donating today.

His iconic work featuring Marilyn Monroe became a testament to both the Art Newsist’s and society’s obsession with fame. After her death from an overdose of sleeping pills, in 1962 the world became ever more obsessed with her fragile legend. Warhol’s likenesses of her, borrowed from a publicity still from her movie Niagara, helped feed that obsession by perpetuating her image within celebrity popular culture.

Full of colourful scenes and fantastical animals, these highly decorative Soho tapestries captured how Europeans imagined the ‘Far East’ in the early 18th century. They were removed eight years ago for safekeeping when a succession of storms caused damage to the former Tudor powerhouse.

After several years of conservation the tapestries are back on display at The Vyne in Hampshire. Join us on for an anime screening presented by the AGA and our community partner ASAPA .
