Henry’s well hung

16 February 2007 by Angela

One of our best loved pieces has returned home after a long holiday. Henry VIII abdicated his throne at the Walker Art Gallery last September to form part of the Hans Holbein exhibition at Tate Britain. The exhibition was a royal success but we are delighted to announce – after a quick appointment with our experts at the National Conservation Centre, you know how sand gets everywhere after a long break  –  the King has now re-entered the building.
