2008 QEST Scholarship - Easel Painting Conservation

Laura trained in easel paintings conservation at the Courtauld Institute of Art, graduating in 2008. She has since worked at Tate in London and for the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. She is now employed at the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo, Norway where she is responsible for the long-term care and protection of the entire painting collection which includes both Norwegian and international, historic and contemporary paintings.
