Sharpening Perceptions: How to copy a masterpiece

An exhibition of copies of paintings in The Fitzwilliam Museum made by students at the Hamilton Kerr Institute as part of their training to become painting conservators. The copies will be displayed alongside the original paintings. They are not intended to look the same as the original but to show how it was made, with areas of bare canvas or panel, priming layers and drawing.
