The Goulburn Regional Art gallery has discovered original Dutch paintings dating from the 17th century, are part of its collection.

 

Two works from the Moffitt Bequest, the gift which forms the nucleus of the Goulburn collection were thought to date from the 18th century and were regarded with lesser significance.

 

After work by a team at International Conservation Services, the two paintings entitled 'Making Merry' and 'Harvest Home' have been assessed, cleaned and restored.

 

The two works are hanging as part of the latest exhibition at the gallery.

 

Senior Conservation manager and former Goulburnite, Adam Godin will speak about his work on the two discoveries at a session on Friday afternoon.
