In Memoriam: Works Bequeathed or Acquired as Memorials

30 November 2013 until 11 January 2014

This exhibition brings together paintings and artefacts, ranging from paintings by Stanhope Forbes to exquisite Newlyn Copper, bequeathed to Penlee House or donated or purchased in memory of particular individuals. There is no entry charge for this exhibition, so come and enjoy some of the treasures acquired ‘in memoriam’. Bequeathing a painting or artefact can have tax advantages for heirs, as well as offering a gratifying way to perpetuate the donor’s name. We can only accept items that fall within our Collecting Policy, so it is always best to talk to us about any intended bequest before making your Will: if you are interested, please contact the Director for a confidential chat. Exhibition sponsored by Coodes Solicitors.
