The Stichting Restauratie Atelier Limburg (SRAL) is one of the main conservation studios in the Netherlands working for public collections within the province of Limburg as well as on a national and international level.
Currently SRAL consists of six conservation departments, Paintings, Sculpture, Paper, Historic Interiors, Textile and Modern Art, and is a recognized teaching institute. The Institute is staffed with a dynamic team of international conservators and provides around ten internship placements per year for recently graduated conservators.
The conservation studios are housed in a spacious and recently refurbished historic industrial building which also contains a laboratory, photo studio and analytical research facilities. Conservation projects are carried out on traditional paintings, modern works of art, and large projects such as monumental historic interiors both in the studios and ‘on-site’.
Staff conservators are encouraged to carry out research projects using the facilities available and the Institute is committed to the personal and professional development of its staff. SRAL closely collaborates with the newly established University of Amsterdam (UvA) five-year program in Conservation-Restoration of Cultural Heritage. Around ten postgraduate students from three disciplines, Easel Paintings, Historic Interiors and Modern and Contemporary Art, are hosted for a twelve month period in the SRAL studios where the emphasis is directed towards the further development of practical skills and a deepening of theoretical knowledge through workshops and research.
