The Wallace Collection


The Wallace Collection's curatorial team is responsible to the Director and Trustees for the stewardship of the works of art in the Collection.

The curators are responsible for the interpretation, display and presentation of the works of art. An important part of a curator's work is to carry out research on the collections, to find out more about the works of art, how and by whom they were made, and how they found their way into the Collection.

Curators' knowledge and expertise is brought to a wider public through publications, lectures and an active programme of temporary exhibitions.

Curators also provide expert advice to the Government and answer general enquiries concerning works of art. Our curators can also, by appointment, give opinions on works of art owned by members of the public, but may not give valuations. Members of Wallace Collection staff are entitled to decline, without giving any reason, to express an opinion.
