Conservation project at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles
The Adoration of the Kings by Giovanni di Paolo, before conservation treatment
Three paintings from the Kröller-Müller collection have been brought to in Los Angeles, late September 2012. The J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles and the Kröller-Müller Museum have entered into a joint Conservation Partnership Program to have conservation work carried out on these three paintings in the conservation studio of the Getty Museum. The paintings are The Weaver by Vincent van Gogh (image aboven: before conservation treatment), The Adoration of the Kings by Giovanni di Paolo and Portrait of a Man by Édouard Manet. The Weaver and Portrait of a Man have been examined and treated by conservators from the Getty Museum in collaboration with a conservator from the Kröller-Müller Museum. She has accompanied the paintings to Los Angeles and stayed in the Getty Museum for three months as ‘guest conservator’. The paintings by Manet and Van Gogh have been displayed in the Getty Museum, and will return home in April 2014, restored to their former glory.
