Conservation of reverse painting on glass

Reverse paintings on glass are very fragile works of art, and sensitive to their environment. Little is yet known about the techniques employed in their creation, and specialised restorers are few and far between. The Vitrocentre is putting a great deal of effort into researching the techniques and conservation of reverse paintings on glass, based primarily on the excellent source provided by the Ruth and Frieder Ryser Collection. The Centre can prepare, coordinate and monitor restoration work. It also furthers specialist education in the field.
