Schinzel, Hiltrud


Providing a detailed study of art restoration, this collection of essays addresses not only conservators but also artists, museum and exhibition staff, scientists, collectors, and anyone who appreciates art. The first eight writings contain a chronological view of conservation's expanding and difficult concerns within modern and postmodern art, leading up to the present day. The effects of art are made transparent with studies on phenomena apparent in modern art's restoration. The chapters go on to discuss how conservation has had to adapt itself to the development of culture and civilization in the last century, addressing the history, theory, and ethics of restoration. Perception is also debated, focusing on how art can enrich a person's life to reflect creativity.Schinzel, Hiltrud is the author of 'Touching Vision', published 2008 under ISBN 9789054873525 and ISBN 9054873523.
