Wolsey Angels Appeal

Help the V&A to raise the £5,000,000 needed to purchase four bronze Angels originally designed for the tomb of Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, chief advisor to King Henry VIII and once one of the most powerful men in England.

Martin Roth, V&A Director, said: “The angels are a vital part of our national history and artistic heritage. Little of Benedetto da Rovezzano’s English work survives and we are fortunate to be able to put these outstanding sculptures, made for the Tudor court, on display. The angels would be a highly significant addition to the National Collection of Sculpture, held and preserved at the V&A for the future.”

Supported by the National Heritage Memorial Fund and the Art Fund.
