The conference papers in this volume look back over the people, places and occurrences which shaped the first 50 years of painting conservation practice and development - particularly in the UK and the USA. Thirteen authors reflect on a variety of topics including: the historic and on-going debates surrounding the notion of patina; the influence of science and technology on conservation practice; developments in aqueous cleaning methods; the importance of archives, oral history and film, and the role of replicas.
The texts in this volume were presented at the BAPCR conference: Paintings Conservation: The Picture so Far on September 2013
