Adopt a Gainsborough
The Adopt A Gainsborough scheme, offers the opportunity for a personal association with your chosen artwork in the collection. An individual, couple or group of family or friends can exclusively ‘adopt’ any available work from the collection. In return for a donation, the adoption is guaranteed for a 5-year period (that can be rolled over if so wished) and Adopters’ name/s will be on an acknowledgement label, near your chosen work.
The cost of adoption varies depending on the type, size and significance of the artwork. Adopt a drawing from £500. Adopt a painting from £1,500. Donations may be made in instalments. We welcome group adoptions to celebrate a special occasion or in memory of a loved one.
The funds raised will go towards the care and display of the chosen artwork, and conservation where needed. Conservation is entrusted to expert conservators, and allows the collection to be maintained and preserved in the best condition for the enjoyment of future generations. Funds will also support the exhibitions and research programmes at Gainsborough’s House.
Gainsborough’s House would like to thank David Pike for supporting the Adopt A Gainsborough scheme.
