Help bring Minerva to life!!

Broomfield House is a beautiful Grade II* listed 16th century building, the centrepiece of Broomfield Park in Palmers Green. It was badly damaged by fire some 20 years ago. It remains held up by scaffolding and awaits restoration. This is now a matter of urgency.


Some of the most notable historical features of the house include the Baroque murals painted by the Flemish artist Gerard Lanscroon in 1726. Lanscroon was one of the leading mural painters in his time. He also worked on murals at Windsor Palace, Hampton Court, Powis Castle and at Arnos Grove.


The murals were salvaged and are now stored in pieces. The Broomfield House Trust wishes to fund a restoration of parts of the murals and mount an exhibition at the Dugdale Centre in 2018, where visitors will enjoy a glimpse of these beautiful works of art and learn more about the history of Broomfield House and the Park.  


We hope the exhibition will help to ignite further interest in Broomfield House and our aim of raising funds to restore it as a heritage and learning centre for the community.


  WITH YOUR HELP WE CAN DO THIS!!

 

***Arte Conservation has been working on the mural to test the removal of protective material. Our image shows the head of Minerva, the Roman goddess of poetry, medicine, wisdom and the arts – seeing the light for the first time in over 30 years. Broomfield House Trust would use the £10,000 funds raised to fully restore this section of the mural dedicated to Minerva to its former glory.***
