Past Projects

Pastel Conservation Project

AFL continues to support the conservation of pastels in the Louvre’s collection of Drawings and Prints. In 2015, Joan and Mike Kahn gave a major grant to complete the conservation work on the collection. Their generous gift will also make possible the English edition of a catalogue on the collection being produced to accompany an exhibition of pastels in 2018. It will be the first time that the Louvre’s incomparable collection of pastels has been illustrated in its entirety and in color.
