A technical examination of artists’ workshops and studios across history and media, told through the collections of the National Gallery of Art
Volume 6 of the National Gallery of Art’s biennial conservation research journal Facture explores the themes of workshops and studios in different cultural contexts and various media. Topics examined include serialization in the Della Robbia workshop, the creative practice of early twentieth-century French bronze founders, the restoration histories of French marbles from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the complex interplay between an artist’s technique and the strict competition guidelines of the Prix de Rome, the production of a manuscript by Joris Hoefnagel, and the collaborative nature of an early draft of Freydal ordered by the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I. The six peer-reviewed essays, richly illustrated with detailed photography, generate valuable insights for conservators, art historians, and scientific researchers.
