Horse painting

How many men does it take to move a painting?

In this instance it was nine in total (not everyone is in this picture). This life-size painting of a horse hasn’t been moved for some time and now we know why. It is being cleaned by a specialist company in Cambridge prior to being loaned to a museum next year for an exhibition. Ensuring it was safely lifted down from the wall and placed in the removal van took the skill and patience of nine people, including six members of the Grimsthorpe estate team.
