The Chester Beatty Library in Dublin with the continued support of The Sumitomo Foundation in Tokyo, have now commissioned Restorient to conserve three more of their most treasured Japanese paintings. Dating from the early 17th century this set of hand scrolls chart the epic tale of "Hunting the Ogres"
It will be possible to follow the conservation of these magnificent hand scrolls here on this blog. We at Restorient are delighted to have the opportunity to share this remarkable project, and to offer some insights into this type of specialist conservation.
There is nothing like the fever which grips the whole country when ice forms on the canals and rivers of Holland. We resisted the temptation to go for a slither ourselves prefering to concentrate on the assembly of the hand scrolls.
