Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s treasured rococo painting The Swing is currently undergoing gentle cleaning and restoration. This is a process that all paintings of a certain age must go through occasionally in order to keep them safe for our visitors to enjoy, now and into the future. When The Swing returns to our galleries, its brilliant colours will sparkle – and delight us all over again.
Visit the Wallace Collection soon to experience The Swing as Fragonard intended.
Register now for our special events season in November and December and check back soon for a behind the scenes look at the conservation treatment.
