Conserving a Korean Buddhist painting

From September 2010 to August 2011 visitors were able to observe the conservation of a large eighteenth-century Korean Buddhist painting, “Buddha Seokamoni (Shakyamuni) Preaching to the Assembly on Vulture Peak”. Work on this delicate painting on silk is taking place in public view, in the newly-installed Korean Art galleries in the Hammer Building at LACMA.
