Course: Painting Restoration
Program: Internship Course
Period : Jun.1,2015-May,2017
In order to add more practical experience in my career, I decided to study in Florence, the home of restoration work. I wish to improve my painting restoration techniques through experiencing various types of restoration works as well as learning the latest restoration techniques. I am looking forward to letting you know about my daily life in Florence and my weekend visits to churches, museums and so on.
After putting base colors on all the deficits of the drawing and varnished over them, colors are added using resin paints. I start from the deficits then fix all other minor scratches to finish it up.
At the Uffizi Gallery, there is a small exhibition of arts reserved by Carabinieri (Italian National Military Police) going on now. As Italy being one of the world’s most dedicated countries for conserving arts, there exists a special military unit in charge of collecting arts and cultural assets lost after the World Wars, keeping custody of arts that suffered damages from thefts or terrorisms, and the excavation work in dangerous areas. At the exhibition, you can see a variety of the first-class arts from pots and jewelries made during the ancient Greek era to Renaissance drawings. You can even view very interesting movies of arts when they got back from theft, as well as actual excavation work.
