Thanks to Friends Sleeping Beauties are being revealed

Last autumn an appeal to the Friends raised an amazing £10,000 towards the conservation of The Garden Court, a beautiful painting by Sir Edward Burne-Jones. Conservation work is now unveiling the true beauty of Burne-Jones’ sleeping maidens. However, the long restoration path has presented a number of challenges along the way for conservators Hannah Tempest and Rachel Howells.
