'The Visit of Queen Sheba to King Solomon' by Lavinia Fontana at the National Gallery of Ireland has been selected to receive a grant from the Bank of America Art Conservation Project.

It's one of 21 major art restoration projects in nine countries to be supported this year.

Last year the project funded conservation and digitisation of four medieval Irish manuscripts held by Trinity College Dublin. It previously supported conservation of 'The Marriage of Strongbow and Aoife' by Daniel Maclise, which is now back on permanent display at the National Gallery in Dublin.
