Conserving The Painted Past
Developing approaches to wall painting conservation from the proceedings of a conference held by English Heritage in London, UK. 2-4 December, 1999. Wall paintings -ranging from delicate frescoes in Roman villas to larger decorative and figural schemes in churches, cathedrals, and domestic buildings- are the source for this conference. These works of art now suffer from environmental changes as well as past irreversible treatments. 200 pgs. Softcover.
