A number of Hull’s historic maritime paintings from the Hull Maritime Museum, some dating back to the 1700s, have been sent to a specialist laboratory for conservation.
Following a survey of 400 paintings, the 12 selected paintings that depict a variety of maritime themes with important links to Hull’s rich maritime history have been de-installed, packed and transported to a conservation studio in Lincoln.
Here's an glimpse of the paintings being removed from display and packed for safe travels. Thanks to our Maritime Media Volunteers for capturing the milestone.
