The National Museums of Scotland is planning to mount a major ‘blockbuster’ exhibition on the Dukes of Hamilton and the Hamilton Palace collection in the summer of 2017. This will include many important paintings, pieces of furniture and silver, and illuminated manuscripts now owned by museums and galleries in Europe and North America. However, NMS is keen to include ‘unknown’ or little-known items now in private hands.
Owners are urged to contact Dr Godfrey Evans, either by post, at National Museums Scotland, Chambers Street, Edinburgh EH8 9EU, or by e-mail, via firstname.lastname@example.org. Dr Evans will probably be able to provide them with additional information about their items.
