A conservação de pinturas de cavalete (e não só)

Outro volume igualmente há muito anunciado também agora foi publicado. É o seguinte:

Joyce Hill Stoner, Rebecca Rushfield (ed.), The Conservation of Easel Paintings, Abingdon, Routledge, 2012.

Este volume certamente que irá passar a ser a obra de referência sobre todo os aspectos materiais relacionados com a pintura de cavalete, desde as fontes documentais relevantes para o conhecimento dos materiais e das técnicas do passado, à história desses mesmos materiais e técnicas, às propriedades dos materiais usados pelos artistas e pelos conservadores, à identificação desses materiais, terminando nos vários problemas relacionados com a conservação.

O livro está disponível em pré-visualização aqui e aqui (um número limitado de páginas em cada um dos endereços).
