Art Conservation Workshop Videos
Watch videos of the talks from our workshop at the National Gallery.
Operation Nightwatch at the Rijksmuseum
An innovative exhibition and research project, where the public can watch researchers studying Rembrandt’s painting “The Night Watch” with scientific techniques including micro-XRF.
National Gallery in London
The National Gallery in London used micro-XRF to reveal a hidden sketch on a Leonardo da Vinci painting, which is the focus of their exhibition: “Leonardo: Experience a Masterpiece”.
