The ongoing improvement of the galleries at the V & A, bringing them into line with the statutory safety requirements laid down for public buildings, means that a certain amount of disruption is inevitable from time to time. I do hope that Mr Fenton will return to the museum in the near future, where he can see the most important collection of Italian Renaissance sculpture outside Italy.
Meanwhile, plans are afoot for the complete refurbishment and redisplay of the great sculpture gallery near the main entrance. This will eventually provide a handsome and fitting setting for the Three Graces, should the V & A and the National Galleries of Scotland be fortunate enough to raise the outstanding pounds 800,000 by 5 November.
