Yelena Popova


Through her residency with Upton House, artist Yelena Popova will be working with Lord Bearsted's glorious painting collection and the house's enthusiastic team of volunteers to cast light on the historical accounts, archival secrets, technical requirements and practical solutions related to the keeping of the collection during World War II. Researching and responding to the questions: how does a painting collection reflect the history, politics and economics of a period? What happens to a collection in times of conflict?
