Lecture: The Chemistry of Art
| Kippington Church Hall
Thursday 24 February 2011 - 14:00 until 16:00
A fascinating lecture by Martyn Berry which looks in depth at 10 pictures from the National Gallery, from a 14th Century altarpiece to a Renoir. Martyn will discuss issues of provenance, restoration and forgery and, as a retired chemistry teacher himself, Martyn will share the fascinating experiences he has had whilst working as a lead researcher with the National's scientists, librarians and educationists on projects in the gallery.
