On Thursday April 21, the Arts Society Henley takes us on a journey of adventure and discovery in art restoration.
Leading fine art conservationist Julia Korner will guide us from the Italian Renaissance through Mannerism to the Dutch Golden Age.
The three crucial points of conservation – restoration, scientific analysis and research – come together as Julia shows how it leads to the release of their identity.
Julia is a specialist in the conservation and restoration of works of art of paintings, sculptures and frames. She is also an international art dealer, appraiser and lecturer.
She worked independently in her own West London studio for 15 years. Here, she and her small team provide personal and expert attention to specialist conservation work.
Damaged paintings, polychrome statues, picture frames, mantels, traditional gold leaf and gesso frames all emerge restored and transformed through his unparalleled expertise, knowledge and care.
Julia acts as an advisor, appraiser and curator for public and private collections in the UK and overseas. She also gives illustrated talks and lectures.
The meeting will take place in the ballroom at Phyllis Court Club, Henley (no need to be a club member) and starts at 10.45am and repeats at 2.15pm.
Visitors and new members of the society are welcome to join us. We are asking for a donation of £10 for the conference, which lasts one hour.
