Painting Pairs presents collaborative research undertaken by graduates in conservation and art history focussing on paintings currently in the conservation studios at the Courtauld. The paintings that form the focus for investigation by each a pair of graduates are from different periods and pose a range of questions related to their history, conservation and display. They will each report on their technical and art historical examination in a 15-20 minute presentation, plus time for questions.
Organised by Professor Aviva Burnstock (The Courtauld), Pippa Balch (The Courtauld) and Dr Karen Serres (The Courtauld).
