  • Profile

    Emilie is art historian and conservator of paintings. She studied art history (M.A, 1998) and painting conservation (M.A 2003) at the University of Paris I, Panthéon-Sorbonne. Her conservation studies were completed with internships at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New-York, United States, Fulbright grantee), in the Appolon Gallery in the Louvre (Paris, France) and in the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (the Netherlands).

    She worked as freelance conservator in France before moving to the Netherlands in 2005. After having been employed by the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, she joined the staff of the Stichting Restauratie Atelier Limburg (SRAL) in 2005. In this context, she has worked almost exclusively since April 2006 for the Royal Palace Amsterdam project that focused on the conservation and restoration of large-scale 17 th century paintings on canvas.     

    Since September 2008 she is part of the educational staff of the University ofAmsterdam, Master program conservation and restoration of cultural heritage. She teaches and coordinates the so-called module Object Gericht Practicum for the first year Master. The program involves amongst others examination and documentation of paintings' material and technical characteristics, restoration techniques for surface dirt and varnish removal from painted surfaces and consolidation of paint layers. Emilie is as well involved in the Minor and Post initial programs through the organization of practical workshops.

    In 2011 Emilie started PhD research at the same university which concentrates on the impact of wax-resin lining for conservation and restoration of Dutch 17 th century large-scale paintings on canvas.
