Conservation and Restoration

Combining knowledge and skill

The conservator combines academic knowledge and technical skill to preserve our cultural heritage for the future in both research and practice. This involves profound knowledge of materials and techniques, conservation ethics and contextual values, which differ with each case: from Rodin’s cast bronze Thinker in a sculpture garden and crafted wooden furniture in the Royal Palace, to Mark Rothko’s delicate abstract paintings in a museum collection.
