Tate’s Principal Conservation Scientist Bronwyn Ormsby, and Conservation Scientist Judith Lee, will discuss the research and key findings of Tate’s contributions to the CMOP: Cleaning Modern Oil Paintings EU-funded collaborative research project [2015 -2018] into the challenges posed by the water, solvent and mechanical sensitivities of 20th and 21st Century oil paintings.
The event will communicate:
- the causes and mechanisms behind the formation of paint sensitivity
- the evaluation and optimisation of soiling removal systems
- the development of methodologies for cleaning modern and contemporary oil paintings
The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session.
