Collaboration and Support

RECH activities are being made by many contributors from Portugal and from around the world; by conservators students and professionals, scientists, art historians, animators, and so on.

All of them are united by the desire to have access and share information about retouching and all the issues related: colour perception, pigments, binders, mixing and matching colours, reconstruction, scientific examination of works of art for conservation, among other issues.
