Juvisy Painting Appeal

Help us to buy an important painting, The Château de Juvisy, by Pierre-Denis Martin.

The next stage of the V&A’s FuturePlan sees the opening of our redeveloped Europe 1600-1800 galleries. To complete these galleries we need your help to make one of our most ambitious acquisitions to date - a major Baroque oil painting of the Château de Juvisy, by Pierre-Denis Martin, court painter to Louis XIV.

An accurate depiction of a French château and gardens from the 17th century is very rare, and unusually for an architectural portrait of this kind, the scene is bursting with human activity. Martin provides an extraordinary and vivid insight into the many aspects of château life and there are currently no paintings like it in any museum in the UK.

We urgently need your support to help raise the final £500,000 for this important painting to become a part of our collection. Your contribution towards this appeal, however large or small, will be vital to ensuring that we can make this ambitious acquisition.

We are delighted to announce that the Friends of the V&A have made a recent donation of £200,000 towards this appeal, but we still urgently need your support to ensure that we can purchase this significant centrepiece in time.
