"The Picture So Far: 50 Years of Painting Conservation"
Faraday Theatre, Royal Institution
London, UK
Friday 12 July 2013

The British Association of Paintings Conservator-Restorers is
pleased to announce a major retrospective and discussion of the
future of painting conservation.

Fifty years ago, as the nation was emerging from post-war
depression, caring for the nation's heritage became imbued with
higher ideals, reflecting a new found optimism and confidence in
organisation, technology and cultural harmony.  This conference will
examine and celebrate the aspirations and achievements of the early
painting conservation pioneers and those who followed them.

The following pre-eminent speakers will trace the trajectory of
conservation practice, philosophy, teaching, technology and
professional organisation over the last half century.  Leading us to
examine the fundamental principles of our profession today and
appraise the challenges that will face the next generation of
