Gustav Berger, internationally recognised as one of the most innovative thinkers in the field of painting conservation, offers the reader fresh insights into his deliberations over conservation problems and treatments. He is best known for his development of BEVA, an adhesive specifically formulated for use in conservation, and for his groundbreaking research in the cracking of paint. Included in this book are updated and revised descriptions of landmark investigations and approaches, as well as observations on how the results have fared. Anyone interested in the development of modern conservation practice will find this volume an invaluable reference and a fascinating read.
This series isolates authentic works from the great volume of Rembrandt-like paintings produced by his pupils and followers. The fifth volume covers his small-scale history and genre works, revealing fresh understanding of the painter's artistic evolution.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art holds one of the most significant and best-known collections of European paintings in the world.
