Conserving Canvas Symposium

  • About
  • Reviews

Conserving Canvas Symposium is an international grant initiative focused on the conservation of paintings on canvas. Artists began to use canvas supports during the 15th century in Europe, and the material quickly grew in popularity. Today, the adoption of the canvas is ubiquitous, with museums in virtually all parts of the world possessing canvas masterpieces, whether they be old master paintings or modern or contemporary artworks. For centuries, it was common practice to protect canvas paintings by backing or lining them with another canvas to create a moisture barrier and provide greater structural integrity. However, in the 1980s, museum conservators adopted less invasive techniques. While this shift towards minimal intervention is positive overall for the field, it has also produced a knowledge gap among today's museum conservators and curators in how to treat lined paintings.
