A Talk: Conserving Theban tomb paintings

On Thursday 29th March, we welcomed Bianca Madden and the Oxford Conservator’s Group to OCC and the Chantry Library. Bianca gave a great talk on her work with Theban tomb paintings, exploring the technical challenges and ethical dilemmas of the conservation treatments. Using the Tomb of Sennefer as a case study, the talk was a fascinating insight into wall painting conservation and the strengths and weaknesses of international collaboration.
