V&A SCREENING SCOTT

  • Comment

George Gilbert Scott's Hereford Screen has been restored and is to be put on public display on 24 May. Originally designed for Hereford Cathedral, the ironwork screen was removed in 1967 and sold to the Herbert Art Gallery in Coventry, where it was placed in storage before being given to the V&A. A £750,000 year-long restoration project, involving breaking the screen down into 14,000 pieces, is nearing completion.The screen is to appear in the ironwork gallery of the V&A. 'The Hereford Screen is one of the most important pieces of 19th century architectural metalwork in the V&A, ' said Marian Campbell, curator of the metalwork department at the museum.
