Description

The National Portrait Gallery (NPG) is undertaking a major capital project (the Inspiring People project)
which includes a comprehensive re-display of the collection combined with a significant refurbishment
of the building, the creation of new public spaces and a more welcoming visitor entrance and public
forecourt. As part of these works, the Gallery wishes to commission a package of conservation works
comprising local stone cleaning trials to the Galley façade and the dismantling and storage of the
memorial to Sir Henry Irving. The statue (erected 1910, cast in bronze on a limestone base) is located
on Charing Cross Road to the north of the NPG and is to be re-erected (and re-orientated) in the same
location as part of a later phase of works to construct the proposed new forecourt.
