NOCG Art Restoration and Research
For some works of art, a more in-depth diagnosis and analysis are required. We provide services such as microscopic paint analysis, ultra-violet examination and infra-red analysis, which allows the conservator to penetrate the surface of the painting revealing hidden information. Infrared examination combined with ultra-violet analysis and chemical testing enable our conservators to understand the condition history of a painting before pursuing treatment. Minimal intervention is always the goal in conserving paintings.
