This is the second of two presentations by this year's Research Associates. Four pairs of Research Associates, each composed of a graduate student from the department of Conservation and Technology and one studying art history, are investigating paintings from The Courtauld Gallery and other collections in advance of conservation treatment. They will each report on the developments and results of their technical and art historical examinations in a 20-minute presentation, followed by a short discussion.
