The Tudor Gallery is one of my favorite rooms to visit at the NPG, the illustrious and turbulent characters in the room captivate me. Sumptuous fabric details, propaganda styling, and the shifting fortunes of the sitters in the paintings always make them an inspiring bunch.
To preserve Anne Boleyn's famed portrait, restoration is desperately needed for the decaying wood panel used for the the painting. Your can read more about the preservation and the National Portrait Gallery's campaign.
Natalie's efforts have earned the support of writers and luminaries of the period, including Alison Weir.
In order to help, I've put up a set of illustrated Henry VIII + Anne Boleyn Journals with Portraits Prints for silent auction on the Tudor Trail. All of the proceeds will go directly to the NPG's preservation fund.
Hopefully we'll make a dent in the funds needed to save the painting... the bidding has already begun!
