This seminar examines the history of panel transfers to canvas in Britain. The process involved transferring the paint layer of a work, and sometimes the ground as well, by paring back the panel before applying a canvas as a new support. It was designed to deal with flaking paint and decayed panels, commonly in Italian panel paintings but also sometimes in British panel portraits and other northern paintings. A similar process was used for transfers from one canvas to another, as opposed to lining.
