In 2006 the Trust took our Barak painting to the Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation at the University of Melbourne to get conserved. As part of this process the Conservators did some infrared radiation and uncovered a map underneath Barak’s painting, which shows that Barak was using second hand paper for his paintings.
