In preparation for the exhibition Rembrandt: True to Life, NGV conservators documented and studied the NGV’s extensive collection of Rembrandt prints, not only to assess their condition and ensure their preservation, but to gain a deeper understanding of the artist’s printmaking materials and processes.
This research is now available for everyone to access, in the form of an online database, Rembrandt’s Watermarked Papers at the National Gallery of Victoria.
Marking the closing weekend of the exhibition, hear from NGV paper conservators Ruth Shervington and Bonnie Hearn, alongside frames conservator Holly McGowan-Jackson, and paintings conservator Caitlin Breare, as this specialist team shares their insights into researching, conserving and caring for works by Rembrandt.
