Book - 2004
Rate this:
The British Galleries were opened at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 2001 to huge international acclaim and have subsequently won awards.
The environmentally controlled galleries allowed, for the first time in the Museum's history, all of the categories of British decorative and fine art to be displayed including textiles, lacquer, works on paper and the most fragile gilding.
This book details the immense task of putting the galleries together, from the initial early days of research through to acquisition, design and implementation.
