The Conservation Center >> Repairing a Cracked Ivory Sculpture



April at The Center

This month our articles feature artworks of all sizes, from a six-inch ivory sculpture to a  painting over eight feet tall. In the first article, read about a small ivory figural sculpture that came to The Center in fragments.  Next, enjoy a video from a collaborative project with the Illinois Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museum, the second of our three-part series on the piece. Finally, learn how we created a custom frame and provenance album to help preserve the history of a large dramatic painting.
