“As the Covid-19 pandemic forces us all into a strange and socially disconnected world we are reminded of the true value of our cultural institutions. The Chester Beatty Collections offer a comforting reminder of humanity’s persistent and enduring legacy; reflecting on beautiful artworks, produced centuries and perhaps millennia ago, provides reassuring certainty in an uncertain time. By leaving your own legacy, you will enable the Chester Beatty to research, publish, conserve and acquire works to add to the Collection, preserving it as a beacon of support for future generations.”
