UKRG event: Wellcome to the Jungle (3/3)



Landseer in a Lorry.
Janice Slater, Head of Collections Management, National Galleries of Scotland


Janice gave us the history of the major acquisition of Sir Edwin Landseer’s The Monarch of the Glen which was strongly supported by the public and funding bodies before being acquired in May 2017. She then told us how she was inspired by a comedy sketch on the telly (Chewin’ the Fat – Community Art) to take Monarch of the Glen to school pupils who may not visit art galleries in the major cities – in the back of the gallery’s art truck.

Janice and her colleagues in conservation, art handling and security worked together to find the necessary solutions to concerns regarding environmental conditions, security and access to meet the necessary GIS standards and offer a unique up close and personal experience with this work.

The painting was glazed and fitted into a custom-made t-frame with Perspex and a data-tag inside to monitor the environment. The truck heating was on and the side door open to regulate the temperature. Portable stairs were used for access (modified) and a maximum of 10 visitors were on board, monitored and supervised at all times.

We watched a short video of the comedy clip followed by the NGS reality, showing the pupils reactions when they heard the painting was outside their school. They had been studying the painting in the classroom, and when their teacher surprised them by telling them the painting was outside, their reaction was heart-warming.
Art for all!

Aisha Burtenshaw (UKRG Chair) closed the event by thanking all the speakers and the Wellcome Collection for hosting, and went on to proclaim - We're amazing!
