Early Italian Paintings: Approaches to Conservation

Edited by Patricia Sherwin Garland

Early Italian Paintings: Approaches to Conservation reproduces the papers and panels presented at a symposium on the conservation of early Italian paintings held at the Yale University Art Gallery in April 2002. The symposium marked the midpoint in a five-year collaboration among conservators, art historians, and scientists in the studios and curatorial departments of the Gallery and the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles. Exploring practical and theoretical issues in this constantly evolving and often-contentious field, the contributors—including Mark Aronson, Giorgio Bonsanti, Elisabeth Mognetti, and Laurence B. Kanter—offer valuable insight for professionals and aficionados alike. Details and before-and-after photographs reveal the technical mastery of today’s conservators.
