Studies in the History of Painting Restoration

Editors  Christine SitwellSarah Staniforth

Published information about the restoration of paintings prior to the twentieth century has been very limited despite the fact that extensive documentation exists in the archives of royal, public and private collections throughout Europe. Studies in the History of Painting Restoration reveals an interesting and detailed account of the materials and methods used, the interaction between restorer, curator and collector and the different philosophical approaches towards restoration and the care of paintings.
