Nativity of the Christ Child Before & After Conservation

The Nativity of the Christ Child, which dates to the early 1500s, is the earliest and smallest of the tapestries conserved under the initiative. It entered the collection in 1979 as a gift from a Gallery patron but required treatment before it could be exhibited. The Nativity was conserved with funding from Dan and Dorothy Gill, the Helen H. Berkeley Conservation Fund, and the Gallery Council of the Memorial Art Gallery.
