2010-11: Conservation and Art Historical Analysis
For this year’s Courtauld’s Collections project, two Research Associates, studying art history – Roxanne Sperber and Alexandra Thom – were each paired with two further Research Associates from the Conservation & Technology Department (easels) – Anna Cooper and Harriet Pearson respectively – to research two paintings from The Courtauld Gallery – a fourteenth-century Florentine panel painting and a sixteenth-century painting of “Job and his Comforters” – which are undergoing conservation. This resulted in a cross-disciplinary approach to the study of the paintings. The Research Associates presented the results of their research at workshops on 4 March and 13 June 2011.
