Changing Impressions: The conservation process

This section considers the conservation process in detail.

The work can be divided into six stages:

  1. Recording, Examination and Testing
  2. Surface cleaning
  3. Backing removal
  4. Washing
  5. Repairing and Lining
  6. Pressing and Mounting

The Gallery would like to acknowledge the contributions to the project of Clare Reynolds ACR MIPC, who carried out the conservation work, and John Chase, who took the photographs of the work in progress.
