    Join the Tate Gallery's painting conservator and conservation
    scientist as he discusses the influence of synthetic paints on
    Andy Warhol's paintings' compared to his contemporaries Roy
    Lichtenstein, Morris Louis, Frank Stella, and David Hockney.

    Painters' techniques are a constant source of fascination. But
    the significance of the type of paint used has often been
    undervalued, particularly in the twentieth century when the
    range of paints available to artists has steadily expanded and
    diversified. New paints have been developed that display
    remarkable properties, and recently increasing numbers of
    painters have explored the dramatic possibilities offered by
    house paints.
