Special Offer: Buy any 2 books from the "A Closer Look" series for only £12.
The preservation of works of art for future generations is a central function of the National Gallery. Historically, the care of pictures has sometimes sparked controversy, but as this expert guide shows, modern conservation emphasises long-term stabilisation of paintings by methods that alter their structure as little as possible. A Closer Look: Conservation of Paintings discusses the material nature of paintings, describing how they age and the main types of conservation treatment carried out on them, as well as providing an insight into the issues that confront the conservator.View spreads of this book (1 MB PDF)
