Jack Butler Yeats Conservation Project

Check out the exciting new discoveries we have made through this conservation project, supported by the Heritage Council.

Conservation work has begun at the Paper Conservation Studio Dublin and Conservation Letterfrack. Pat McBride, from Paper Conservation Studio in Dublin has already been in touch with the Model with an exciting update – the discovery of further watercolour drawings hidden behind the 19 pasted watercolours on the traveling case – and the further thrill that each drawing is dated on the back.

These wonderful artworks and prints were found after 19 watercolours were carefully separated from the lid of the wooden chest.
