About Annika Eriksson
John Jones recruited Annika to develop a new Conservation Studio which opened in February. The Conservation team has recently worked on diverse and intriguing artworks such as gold metallic Andy Warhol's from his âLove' series, Indian Miniatures, Hogarths, and a large Francis Bacon Triptych. Annika Erikson has worked with a wide variety of museums, collections and artists. At Tate, she worked in acquisitions as well as collection care and exhibitions across all Tate sites, with artworks ranging from British oil portraits on paper from the 1660's and work's by Turner and his followers to contemporary installations of paper-based sculptures from North America and Brazil. Mike Nelson's Coral Reef was a particular challenge that involved collaborating with sculpture conservators. At St Paul's Cathedral, Annika worked with the Architectural Prints and Drawings collection, and at the Royal Horticultural Society Annika worked with a fascinating collection of botanical watercolours, rare books, daguerreotypes, glass lantern slides, Victorian Christmas cards and Chinese Export paintings. While there she discovered a previously unknown original portrait-caricature of Charles Darwin on unusual blue coated paper in the collection.
