China Culture Connect in association with Royal Museums Greenwich

Introduction: The 4th Heritage Conference has an internationally
renowned line up of speakers and a programme of never?before-seen
conservation demonstrations that focuses on Asiatic pictorial art
and the conservation of Chinese painting and calligraphy.

Asiatic pictorial art, especially Chinese painting and calligraphy,
has long been an important component of collections yet this
heritage is heavily reliant upon conservation and the consequent
understanding of historical research, materials, painting techniques
and repairing methods.

Speakers from the Palace Museum, Yi He Yuan Summer Palace in
Beijing, the British Museum, the Shanghai Museum and Nishio
Conservation Studio will discuss paintings and the communication
between these countries over the centuries. They will explore the
influence of different traditions on each another and how local
styles of decoration and conservation techniques evolved.

Over two days, experts from China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, and Europe
will present talks and a programme of three technical demonstrations
making this conference a once only opportunity for those in or
training for the conservation, curatorial and museum management
