Paper Conservation Studio

 The Paper Conservation studio was organized in 1994 to protect and conserve art on paper belonging to the collection of the National Gallery of Greece. This includes drawings, gouaches, watercolors, pastels, posters, documents, engravings, architectural drawings etc.

 Within those years plenty of artwork ascribed to famous Greek artists has been treated. Among them are engravings of Tassos, Galanis and Katraki, Drawings of great painters, such as Iakovides, Lytras, Gysis and Parthenis. Furthermore, artefacts of foreign artists, such as, Kratzeizen’ s and Lautrec’ s lithographs, Bosche’ s, Rembrandt’s and Goya’ s engravings, also, Ziller’ s watercolors and architectural drawings.

 In addition to the conservation of the damaged objects of the National Gallery and the preparation of exhibitions housed there, the studio makes condition reports and prepares items for external exhibitions. Also inspects and monitors the climatic conditions of selected branches of the museum related to the studio.

 The current practice of the Paper Conservation studio follows this of the European Conservation centers. Using the most advanced techniques, the Paper Conservation studio focuses more on preservation, ensuring the expanding of the artefact’s lifetime, than their aesthetic restoration.
