Description University of Leiden, the Netherlands June 1995 Preprints edited by Arie Wallert, Erma Hermens, and Marja F. J. Peek From the Getty Trust Publications Symposium Preprints Series 1995, 232 pp. Bridging the fields of conservation, art history, and museum curating, the twenty-five papers in this volume report recent research on historical painting techniques, including wall painting and polychrome sculpture. Chapters detail the latest art historical research and scientific analyses of original techniques and materials, with references to such historical sources as medieval treatises and descriptions of painting techniques in historical literature. The contributors discuss the painting methods of Rembrandt and Vermeer, wall paintings in English churches, Chinese paintings on paper and canvas, and Tibetan tankas. Color plates and black-and-white photographs of works from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century illustrate many of the essays. The contributors, representing museums and conservation institutions throughout the world, prepared these papers for an international symposium designed for art historians, conservators, conservation scientists, and museum curators.
