Our Vice President Dr Austin Nevin has been appointed as the Courtauld Institute's first Head of Conservation. IIC congratulates him on his new post.
In its announcement, the Courtauld writes:
"Building on The Courtauld’s long history as a centre of excellence in teaching both the conservation of easel paintings and the conservation of wall painting, Dr Nevin’s role will be to bring the two departments together, and to raise the profile of The Courtauld’s work in this area nationally and internationally."
Austin Nevin said:
“I am honoured and thrilled to return to The Courtauld as Head of Conservation. My training at The Courtauld has been the foundation for my vision that is inclusive and international, and based on shared values, scientific research and conservation practice. I will be arriving with many suitcases and will be bringing with me conservation experiences from Greece, Italy, China and Sweden – I honestly cannot imagine a better home than with friends and new colleagues at The Courtauld.”
