I. Statement of Purpose

I. Statement of Purpose[edit | edit source]

This third volume of the Paintings Conservation Catalog is designed to give the working painting conservator a compendium of methods and materials currently in use for inpainting losses in painted surfaces within a context of historical approaches and current ethical philosophy. Each chapter was written by an individual contributor and was vetter for content by an eight-member editorial board, including seven practicing painting conservators and a conservation scientist, to ensure accuracy and completeness of approach. It is not the purpose of this volume to advocate one method or set of materials over another, but to present to readers what is currently considered a responsible approach for making paintings legible.
