The National Gallery Technical Bulletin is a unique record of research carried out at the National Gallery, London. Beautifully produced and illustrated, this annual journal covers all aspects of the conservation, technical study, and care of the paintings in collection. Drawing on the combined expertise of curators, conservators, and scientists, it brings together a wealth of information about artists’ materials, working practices, and techniques. The Technical Bulletin is an invaluable resource for art historians, collectors, museum curators, and all those with an interest in old master paintings, as well as essential reading for conservators.

Volume 20 is a special extended issue focusing on works by Van Dyck and Rubens in the National Gallery, and with an introductory essay on seventeenth-century painting practice in Antwerp and London and the influence of Italy. This Technical Bulletin is published to mark the 400th anniversary of Van Dyck’s birth.
