Trellised Garden with Animals Before & After Conservation

Trellised Garden with Animals, which was made in the well-known Brussels workshop of Wilhelm de Pannemaker, was acquired in 1931 specifically for exhibition in the museum’s Renaissance gallery. Years of constant display took their toll, and the tapestry was taken down 30 years ago until funds could be raised for treatment. It was conserved at the Textile Conservation Laboratory under a grant from the Instituted of Museum and Library Services in 2009-2010.
