This volume continues the National Gallery’s acclaimed series of Technical Bulletins with a selection of studies across the range of the collection, jointly authored by experts in the field of conservation and the scientific examination of paintings.
 
This issue focuses on the conservation and restoration of Artemisia Gentileschi’s Self Portrait as Saint Catherine, Guido Reni’s The Toilet of Venus, Scipione Pulzone’s Portrait of a Cardinal, and Garofalo’s Holy Family, as well as Charles Eastlake's research into Jan van Eyck’s techniques.
