Munns Painting Restoration 3456 4608 Brading Roman Villa

John P. Munns acquired Lower Morton Farm in 1850 and on his death it was passed to his wife. Their son William Munns alongside Captain Thorp discovered the site of the villa in 1879.

The painting of John Philip Munns has been passed down the Munns family and was donated to the museum by his great granddaughter.


Currently the painting is in need of major conservation work after being damaged whilst in storage. It is an important piece of our collection as it helps us to tell the story of the people who helped discover the villa and the local connection to Brading. As an accredited museum we will need to use highly skilled painting restorers who specialise in fixing damaged artwork.
