Meeting with Alar Nurkse, the curator and painting conservator-restorer at the Art Museum of Estonia.

The main topic of the conversation is dedicated to the unique large-format painting “View of Mount Vesuvius a Day before the Volcanic Eruption” from the collection of the Estonian Museum of Art.

 

There are only few historical genre compositions in the creative work of Ivan Aivazovsky. “View of Mount Vesuvius a Day before the Volcanic Eruption” is a rare example of how the artist devotes to themes of the antique world in his painting. In his story Alar Nurkse, the curator and painting conservator-restorer at the Art Museum of Estonia, will not only  introduce you with the unique history of the painting, the intricate and complex process of the restoration, but also the visual and technical research of the painting.
