Painting: Techniques and Conservation
This publication was a part of various activities that Government Museum and Art Gallery had planned for the international Museum’s day along with Punjab Virasat Charitable trust and Heritage Restorers (now ‘Heritage Preservation Atelier Pvt. Ltd.). The article, “Science and Art of Colour” by Melville Holmes is a unique and ingenious explanation about colour as perceived in the form of light by the human vision and as perceived by an artist in the form of a pigment. Anand Bardhan has very thoughtfully put forth his idea of using tried and tested refined methods of conservation from ancient history. Supriya and Shubhra have shared their experiences in conservation. Namita has tried to create a timeline of Art Techniques.
