A painting, belonging to The National Portrait Gallery, was one of the major works chosen by our panel of judges at the last round of the Woodmansterne Art Conservation Awards. A donation of £10,000 was pledged which has enabled the process of painstaking conservation, removing centuries of over paint, to reveal the coded message incorporated into the work by the unknown English artist.
As soon as our cards are printed at our Watford press, we move them down the road to our distribution centre ready to be selected, packed and despatched to our stockists. We moved our card distribution from The Forest of Dean a few years ago to Milton Keynes after we managed to buy our own warehouse premises there in November last year and have been distributing our cards from here since April.
We were thrilled to receive a lovely email out of the blue today from Woodmansterne’s chief photographer to let us know that today is the 50th anniversary of his joining the company in 1963, back when it was the original colourslide business. Perhaps he is reminding us to send him a card!
