And then there was one...

Sad to say I've been told I can't see the della Robbia quoting from an email redceived today from the V&A

I'm afraid to say that, at present, the Della Robbia altarpiece is in 12 sections having been dismantled from a previous location where it was set into the wall. It is now in an object store which is currently inaccessible to the public due to health and safety reasons as conservation work and treatments are being carried out there. It is due to have its second phase conservation later this year for the forthcoming Medieval and Renaissance Galleries, which will open in November 2009, but is sadly not possible to view until then.

So now I'm left with only the Rood screen
