Hamilton Kerr Institute

Fitzwilliam Museum

Studying at Cambridge

 

Introduction

The conservation work at the Institute demands a continuous programme of research. It is unusual to find paintings that share similar histories, construction techniques and problems. The nature of conservation demands that we make judgements that balance the potential risk of treatment against the potential benefit of that treatment. In order to properly understand the implications of both, we strive to be at the forefront of understanding new and traditional techniques.
