Uncovering the artist behind the painting: Anthony Poon's materials, techniques and inspirations

The gathering of information on materials and techniques of the artist is crucial in enabling greater understanding of the construction of the artwork, and subsequently the required conservation and preservation needs.

During the preparation for the Anthony Poon exhibition Light and Movement Portrayed at the Singapore Art Museum (SAM), the Heritage Conservation Centre's department of Painting conservators had the opportunity in uncovering the materials and techniques of the late Anthony Poon through his artworks in the national collections, and in documenting interviews with the late artist's family members.

In this essay, Painting Conservator, Selina Halim shares with us the insights into this journey of uncovering the artist behind the painting.
