Images from the Exhibit
The Conservation Center for Cultural Properties was established in July of 1980 to serve as a regulated, efficient venue for the conservation of registered cultural properties by private conservation studios. It was the first public art conservation facility in Japan. This exhibition commemorates the Conservation Center's fortieth anniversary by introducing a range of selected works of art that have recently been conserved together with some of the findings made during their conservation process.
