Old Master Painters: Methods, Materials and Interventions
Thursday 10.30-11.30am | Workshop | Dr Chantal Brotherton-Ratcliffe  | Sotheby's Institute of Art

This demonstration by Dr Chantal Brotherton-Ratcliffe will provide insight into some of the techniques and materials of Old Masters. Participants will be introduced to some of the labours and limitations of Old Masters paint studios, and to the ingenuity with which painters solved problems - you should emerge from this session full of astonishment and admiration at the sheer skill with which they manipulated often intractable materials. Finally, using the Institute’s study collection of paintings, we will examine the effects of time or accident on paintings, and examples of restoration.
