Panel Paintings Institutes in Cracow and Dresden
A second institute was held in October at the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden with 29 additional curators and conservators from the region, also using the conservation treatment of a key work by Bartholomäus Sarburgh (shown here) as a test case. Participants are reviewing in detail the recently completed structural work on the Sarburgh panel with the lead conservators. In both cases, the pairing of younger professionals with the few remaining experts on panel paintings is helping to ensure that the next generation of curators and conservators is prepared to take on this highly specialized work.
