Croatian Conservation Institute, in cooperation with the Permanent Exhibition of Ecclesiastic Art in Zadar (SICU) and the City of Zadar, is organising an exhibition to present the results of decades of conservation and restoration carried out at the Zadar Conservation workshop to mark its 60th anniversary. In addition to the long history of the workshop, the aim of exhibition is to present to the public various cultural goods preserved for future generations through the hard work of conservator-restorers from Zadar. Conservation and restoration that is currently being carried out on easel paintings, polychrome wooden sculptures and metal objects will also be presented.
Within the framework of this exhibition, a special place belongs to the polyptych of St. Martin, a masterpiece commissioned by Martin Mladošić, a canon from Zadar, from the great Italian Renaissance painter Vittore Carpaccio at the end of the 15th century. This exhibition continues a series of activities started after the completion of extensive research, conservation, and restoration carried out by the employees of the Zadar Department for Conservation.
