文化遺產保護系列研討會4:亞洲書畫的歷史研究與修復, 2013年10月18-19日)
China Culture Connect in association with Royal Museums Greenwich

The 4th Heritage Conference has an internationally renowned line up of speakers and a programme of never–before-seen conservation demonstrations that focuses on Asiatic pictorial art and the conservation of Chinese painting and calligraphy.
Asiatic pictorial art, especially Chinese painting and calligraphy, has long been an important component of collections yet this heritage is heavily reliant upon conservation and the consequent understanding of historical research, materials, painting techniques and repairing methods.
Speakers from China, Taiwan, Japan and Korea will discuss paintings and the communication between these countries over the centuries. They will explore the influence of different traditions on each another and how local styles of decoration and conservation techniques evolved.
Over two days, experts from the Palace Museum, Yi He Yuan Summer Palace in Beijing, the British Museum and the Shanghai Museum will present talks and a programme of three technical demonstrations making this conference a once only opportunity for those in or training for the conservation, curatorial and museum management sectors.
Join us and your colleagues at the National Maritime Museum for this unique conference and take your part in addressing important conservation and historical topics in a friendly and stimulating environment.
Not to be missed topics include:

• Large-scale pictorial art conservation - Qing Dynasty Chinese export wallpaper (National Trust) and Mural painting in Imperial building (The Summer Palace, China)
• Conservation theories and case studies by painting and calligraphy conservators
• Scientific researches on pigment and ink, consolidant and adhesive and types of traditional paper
• Qing court art and modern Chinese painting
