Naval Officers Appeal

The National Portrait Gallery in London has launched a £20,000 appeal to restore Sir Arthur Stockdale Cope's Naval Officers of World War I (1921). This massive canvas - 8ft x 16ft 10” -, depicts 22 of the Royal Navy's top officers in the Admiralty Board Room in Whitehall. It is badly in need of restoration and hasn't been on show for decades. The Gallery hopes to have it restored to go on display for the 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War in 2014 (CLICK).
