The Poussin Project
Carl Villis, Conservator or European paintings before 1800
Nicholas Poussin’s Crossing of the Red Sea (c. 1634) is one of the National Gallery of Victoria’s most prized paintings. For NGV conservator Carl Villis, thanks to a special grant from French bank BNP Paribas, a full year has been set aside to complete restoration of the work, and to publish weekly updates on the NGV website. Join Carl for a discussion of the work undertaken so far, and the opportunity to ask questions.
