King Charles Reappoints a 'Surveyor of The King's Pictures'

News via. Linkedin (only because I haven't seen this important news published anywhere else yet) that the curator Anna Reynolds has been appointed Surveyor of The King's Pictures. Anna joined the Royal Collection Trust in 2008 and has played key roles in many of its exhibitions ever since, most notably those dealing with the history of fashion and dress. Anna will be the first woman to occupy the post since it was established in 1625.

Regular readers will remember that back in December 2020 the Royal Collection Trust had taken steps to abolish the post, along with Surveyor of the Queen's Works of Art. It's good to see that this historic role has been revived, although, it seems that Anna has been serving as Deputy for at least a year or so beforehand.

Congratulations to Anna.
