Chief conservator Sophie Stewart, buildings environment expert Tobit Curteis, academic Dr Caitlin O’Grady and baroque painting specialist Jane Davies will place the Painted Hall Project in the context of changing conservation philosophies and illuminate the technological advances that make it possible.
