This talk will include a description of the cleaning process used on Constable’s ‘Millstream’, now at Christchurch Mansion; a survey of the development of historic techniques, finishing with some comments on grounds and stretchers today, and some do’s and don’ts.
Illustrated with details from great paintings in the National Gallery, showing how grounds and layers of paint have changed over the years,

At the end of the talk, Rosalind will hold a short surgery for paintings with problems. Bring along a work that you think may be of interest and, if there is time, she will offer an opinion. There will be limited time for this so it will be a case of first come first served. Please, no glazed works or works on paper.
