Adopt a Picture

​This is a unique opportunity to adopt a painting from the 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 channeling 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. Click here to watch our Adopt a Picture video.
