Conservation Treatment Methodology Restorers Enlightenment

Conservation Treatment Methodology Restorers Enlightenment

Conservation Treatment Methodology Restorers Enlightenment. In 2007 Object conservator Barbara Appelbaum wrote her second book Conservation Treatment Methodology’

Restauratoren Nederland invited her to give a masterclass on this subject, titled: Conservation Treatment Methodology Restorers Enlightenment. During the first day the theoretical session brought about a lively discussion between the thirty participants from different conservation discipline, art historians, scientists and other field related disciplines. The second day focused on three case studies brought up by the Tropenmuseum in which we were challenged to solve conservation dilemma’s using the methodology.

On Thursday 31 March 2011 Restauratoren Nederland and the Netherlands Cultural Heritage Agency organised a panel discussion evening featuring Barbara Appelbaum entitled: Conservation treatment who descides? Which was part of the Masterclass ‘Conservation Treatment Methodology Restorers Enlightenment’.

Book Conservation Treatment-methodology

Conservation Treatment Methodology Restorers Enlightenment

Conservation Treatment Methodology presents a systematic approach to decision-making for conservation treatments. The methodology is applicable to all cultural property, independent of object type or material, and its use will enable conservators to be more confident in their treatment decisions.

Conservation Treatment Methodology is illustrated with numerous examples that emphasize the equal importance of the physical and cultural aspects of objects for decision-making. The book also explains how the history of an object and the meaning that it holds for its owner or custodian contribute to determining its treatment.

Conservation Treatment Methodology is an essential text for conservators, historic preservation specialists, and restorers, as well as students. Since it is not a technical manual about how to carry out treatments, the book will also be of value to art historians and museum personnel who work with conservators.

“This book is unique in its overarching, multidisciplinary approach. The writing is not only clear, but entertaining and engaging.”
Dan Kushel, Distinguished Teaching Professor, Art Conservation Department, Buffalo New York) State College

Barbara Appelbaum is one of the premier objects conservators in the United States and the author of Guide to Environmental Protection of Collections. Practicing in New York, Appelbaum was trained at New York University and began her career at The Brooklyn Museum. The author treats a wide range of object types. Projects of note have included George Washington’s leather portfolio, a Marcel Duchamp urinal, and a Marilyn Monroe dress.

*Covers decision-making behind what treatment to use from beginning to end
*Processes can be applied to all conservation specialties
*Considers the factors needed to reconcile the often conflicting demands and difficulties facing a conservator
