Art Conservation in Grove


Removing Varnish from a Painting


Under the guidance of conservator Jean-François de Lapérouse, of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and in partnership with The Institute of Conservation (ICON), Grove Art is delighted to announce a project to expand our content on Art Conservation. In addition to updating articles to reflect the current ethos and concerns of the conservation community, Grove will revise and expand our coverage on risk evaluation and treatment for a variety of materials and specialisms, adding many new and exclusive illustrations. A long-overdue and intensive rewriting of our article on Technical Examination will reflect advances in science and methodology. A reorganization of conservation content will make these topics more visible and easily searchable; New learning resources will provide a ready syllabus of our updated materials for students and other readers.
