Sculpture and monument conservation
The sculpture conservation department cares for and conserves the large and varied sculpture collections of National Museums Liverpool. The collections range from ancient Egyptian and Greek pieces through to modernist works by artists such as Henry Moore and Jacob Epstein. One of the largest groups is the Ince Blundell collection of classical sculptures.
We have also provided advice to, and conserved sculpture and monuments for, a wide range of commercial clients including museums, local authorities, churches, auctioneers and private collectors. We have experience of conserving sculpture in a wide range of materials including marble, stone, terracotta, ceramic, bronze, plaster and wax.
Work is carried out in the Conservation Centre's large and well-equipped studios at the Midland Railway Building in the heart of Liverpool.
The section has extensive experience of laser cleaning of sculpture.
