The painting before being unrolled.

An important part of the Gallery's remit is to care for and maintain the collection for future generations. The Gallery is most grateful to Bank of America Merrill Lynch for their support of the restoration of the iconic painting,The Marriage of Strongbow and Aoife (1854), which is being funded through their Art Conservation Programme. The project is one of ten international projects that will benefit from the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Art Conservation Programme. Funded by the Bank of America Charitable Foundation, the programme aims to support the restoration of works of art that display important cultural and historical value throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and to raise awareness of the important role that conservation plays in ensuring that works of art are preserved, displayed and enjoyed by future generations.
