Note also the upright trolley, which cleverly anchors the composition.

Berwick Street Market dates back to the 18th century and today offers visitors an eclectic mix of street food and stalls.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
