Conservation project at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles
Three paintings from the Kröller-Müller collection have been in Los Angeles since late September 2012. The J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles and the Kröller-Müller Museum have entered into a joint Conservation Partnership Program to have conservation work carried out on these three paintings in the conservation studio of the Getty Museum. In the coming three months, The Weaver by Vincent van Gogh, The Adoration of the Kings by Giovanni di Paolo (above image before conservation treatment) and Portrait of a Man by Édouard Manet will be examined and treated by conservators from the Getty Museum in collaboration with a conservator from the Kröller-Müller Museum. She has accompanied the paintings to Los Angeles and will stay in the Getty Museum for the three months as ‘guest conservator’. When the work is complete, the paintings will briefly be displayed in the Getty Museum, before returning home, restored to their former glory, to be admired in Otterlo.
