Online virtual lecture & seminar - Understanding Modern Analytical and Imaging Methods

ICRI in association with International Academic Projects (IAP) are pleased to offer the opportunity to ICRI members to join an online IAP Virtual lecture and/or seminar on the subject of Understanding Modern Analytical and Imaging Methods by David Peggie, Senior Scientist at the National Gallery London* on Tuesday 2nd June. 

The CPD lecture and seminar are both free to ICRI members. They are primarily aimed at conservators working on painted surfaces, mainly paintings conservators but paper and object conservators will also find it useful as most of the techniques covered have applications in those fields. 

The lecture and seminar will be take place on Zoom. 

The lecture is free to all ICRI members but you must register in order to join. 

The seminar is free to all ICRI members but is restricted to 25 persons maximum -  you must register in order to join. 

Non ICRI members can attend the lecture and seminar by paying a fee of €25 - the same registration process applies.

To register for the lecture and/or seminar send an email to the ICRI membership secretary Julia Poirier at membership@icriconservation.ie by Sunday 24th May.

Successful applicants will receive a confirmation email from ICRI and in advance of the lecture/seminar, participants will be sent joining instructions from International Academic Projects (IAP).

10.00 Lecture by David Peggie on Scientific Methods of Analysis at the National Gallery, London

50 minutes plus 10 minutes questions

14.30 - 16.40 Seminar: An Introduction to Understanding Modern Analytical and Imaging techniques

2x 40 minute presentations, each followed by a 20 minute question and answer session

David Peggie looks at some of the analytical techniques conservators will be familiar with from the conservation literature including:

  1. a. XRF/EDX ...with a refresher on the Structure of the Atom b. Spectroscopy & hyperspectral imaging techniques... with a refresher on the Electromagnetic Spectrum.

Those attending the seminar who have particular issues or questions on the subject that they would like to discuss with David are encouraged to send in such questions in advance to reach IAP at info@academicprojects.co.uk by Wednesday 27th May

*David Peggie, Senior Scientist in the Scientific Department at the National Gallery, London is also a chemistry tutor on the conservation course at City and Guilds of London Art School. His current research uses a variety of chromatographic and spectroscopic techniques for the characterisation of materials in support of conservation treatments and for the understanding of painting technique.
