"International Symposium in Istanbul Rembrandt or Not? Scientific
    Research on Art"
Sakyp Sabancy Muzesi
12-13 April 2012

Art technological research is more and more becoming recognized as a
field in itself. Understanding how a particular work of art was
created and with what materials, can greatly enhance our
interpretation of the work.

Sakyp Sabancy Muzesi Conservation Department will be hosting a two
day symposium on current technical research on art on 12-13 March
2012 at the Sabancy Museum. Scientific research on the works by
Rembrandt and his contemporaries will be presented within the
framework of the symposium.

The first day of this event will feature current technical research
being carried out by conservation scientists from the Metropolitan
Museum and the Pratt Institute in New York, and at the University of

On the second day Dr. Jorgen Wadum will offer a whole day's lectures
about his research on 17th century Flemish and Dutch painters,
especially on Rembrandt's paintings.

The charge for this event is 50 TL (25 Euro) which covers the
two-day symposium participation fee, coffee/tea, post-symposium
reception and tour of the Rembrandt exhibition. We do require all to
register in advance as places are limited.

Talks will start at 9.30 am and conclude by 16:30.

The symposium will be conducted in English with simultaneous
translation to Turkish.
