This morning seminar will be comprised of two lectures on the topic
of agar used in conservation. Agar is a seaweed which, in its gelled
form, is capable of delivering water in a controlled way. Agar has
been used in the different fields of conservation, including
cleaning sculpture, paper, wall painting, and removing lining
adhesive and protective facings from paintings.

The seminar will be presented by Sonia Tortajada. Sonia Tortajada is
a sculpture conservator at the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid,
Spain. She earned a degree (Licenciatura) in Fine Arts specialising
in sculpture conservation, and a graduate degree (D.E.A.) at the
Fine Arts School of the Complutense University of Madrid, and a
degree (Diplomatura) in painting conservation at the
Conservation-Restoration Superior School.

This seminar is free and no registration is necessary.
