The 20th century brought a number of new materials and techniques into the fine arts. In the process of conservation and restoration of modern and contemporary painting, unique, unpredicted problems arise. The aim of the training in the Laboratory of Modern and Contemporary Painting Restoration is to educate students to understand these materials, their ageing and to be able to find the restoration and conservation methods suitable for the treatment. These knowledge and skills are inevitable for the profession of restorer of modern and contemporary painting.
