Victoria Art Gallery’s collection, to restore it to its former
glory and to see your name credited alongside the picture whenever
it is displayed.

The Adopt a Picture scheme is unique in allowing an organisation or
individual to take a work needing conservation under their wing.
The adopter covers the costs of restoration – sometimes for as
little as £120. If you pay UK income tax, your contribution will be
enhanced under the Gift Aid scheme by channelling it through the
Friends of the Victoria Art Gallery, a registered charity. For a
modest additional sum (£140 including VAT) we may be able to
arrange to lend you the restored work for one year. This cost
includes two-way transport of the adopted work to within a 15 mile
radius of Bath.
