New perspectives on some of Tate’s key paintings by Francis Picabia, Pablo Picasso and Max Ernst are presented, as the conclusion of a two-year study into their history, context, materials and techniques. The project was carried out by Tate paintings conservator Annette King, funded by the Clothworkers Foundation, London, working with Tate conservation scientists Dr Joyce Townsend and Dr Bronwyn Ormsby. A number of international art historians, conservators and conservation scientists present new research into Picasso and Picabia, covering both their early and later periods of painting.
The twelve presentations are followed by a discussion, then drinks in the Clore foyer.
Delegates (except concessions) receive a copy of the edited postprints, published by Archetype and edited by Annette King, Joyce Townsend and Adele Wright, in summer 2017. Further copies will be available from Archetype.
