Technical Bulletin


The National Gallery Technical Bulletin, first published in 1977, has achieved a leading position in the study of the materials and techniques of painting, and the scientific examination of paintings; it is essential reading for conservators, conservation scientists, art historians, collectors and curators. Drawing on the combined expertise of curators, scientists and conservators, it brings together a wealth of information about artists’ materials, practices and techniques.
