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. Practicing in New York, Appelbaum was trained at New York University and began her career at The Brooklyn Museum. The concepts of Conservation Treatment Methodology grew from that time; as the only objects conservator among paintings specialists, Appelbaum found herself having to provide the rationale for her treatment choices. The author treats objects from both museums and private individuals including artworks such as a Marcel DuChamps urinal. But Appelbaum's passion is the stuff of history - from George Washington's leather portfolio to a Marilyn Monroe dress. She relishes difficult and unusual conservation challenges-- gilded leather, embroidered and painted silk, and other unforgiving materials. The author is active in professional organizations. She publishes and lectures at seminars and meetings for conservators, architects and institutions. Her book Guide to Environmental Protection of Collections (1991) became a classic in the field and is still in use today.Contenuti:
