For centuries paintings have been treasured as religious icons, great works of art, objects of value. But paintings age, and with age comes change: varnish yellows, candles scorch, dust accumulates. From the sixteenth century to the present day the question of how to restore such works has taxed their owners. The essays in The Art of Conservation, commissioned from the foremost scholars in their field, originally appeared in The Burlington Magazine. Now collected in book form they tell the story of the evolution of the art of conservation over the years throughout Europe and the US.
