Over the past year and a half, I have been working part-time in Washington D.C. on two museum contracts. One at the National Gallery of Art and a shorter contract at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. My work at the National Gallery of Art consists of treating specific paintings, to get them ready for exhibition or travel. One of my treatments, completed last year, was on Jean Dubuffet's "Façades d’Immeubles (Building Façades)," 1946.
My treatment is featured on the Gallery's website where I've shared a blog on its condition issues and the use of a hot-suction table: http://www.nga.gov/content/ngaweb/conservation/paintings/treatment-of-facades-d-immeubles.html.html
