8. Reacquire key works from the Palace's lost collections

Highlights of our progress in 2018/19:

  • Public awareness of this goal has subsequently seen lots of generous loan offers. Some of these are for Winston Churchill’s paintings, a number of which were on display in February 2019.
  • We have re-acquired a Consuelo by Helleu portrait and a wonderful Boldini portrait of Gladys Deacon.
  • We have also acquired a significant collection from the estate of Victor Churchill, much of which is now on display in the Palace.
