Description
All art falls victim to time. Paint flakes off the canvas, marble sculpture cracks, photographs fade, and tapestries fray. It is the art and science of the conservator to find out why art deteriorates, and to take steps to arrest the deterioration and restore the art to its original condition if possible. This volume richly explores why museums, galleries, and private art owners turn to conservators to repair damaged artwork, and why we preserve these works.
