If you are a fan of Jackson Pollock take a look at MoMa’s blog about restoration of exactly his artworks. There are several posts, and they are full of explanatory photos.
AIC posted this on facebook, awesome blog from Moma with video and explanatory images. Funny detail with the ice cream boxes as stuffing.
A detailed account of the restoration of a Clyfford Still self-portrait.
A wonderfully detailed blog about a parchment book conservation project.
There is an explanation for a method of using magnets for the very difficult task of flattening the humidity sensitive parchment.
Conservation at the Texas State Library and Archives Commission
Very detailed blog about paper conservation work, explaining the whole proces, and also research into washing and deacidification of civil war maps.
The use of mist to remove the map from an acidic back board (yes, conservators do often get occasional neck pains). Texas state library also have other insightful posts worth a read.
Found this art conservation blog, another resource of conservation relevant stuff.
A blog with interviews of people primarily in the book preservation field. Good idea and interesting portraits by Kevin Driedger. Maybe it will inspire someone to make portraits of conservators in other fields as well?
V&A has a whole section on their webpage dedicated to conservation!
Great articles and interesting reads. There is also a site specifically for paper conservation. This can be found under conservation techniques.
Now, I must admit I can’t remember if I already posted something about this, but can’t hurt to mention it again.
The Prints and Photographs department of Library of Congress has made a blog called Picture This. Not so many posts yet, but so far it seems interesting.
Here is seen a wonderful ambrotype (glasplate with collodion emulsion with a dark background).
St. Andrews University Library has a nice blog and a good idea. Every week for 52 weeks they post about a rare binding in their collection. There are descriptions of the history and the materials as well as photos. Check it out.
Oh, and they also have a blog!
I just discovered a fellow conservator also blogging about conservation. Heather has some great posts where she, among other, discusses her opinions on preservation of contemporary art and tells about visits to conservation studios. Also she has some nice video and audio links with interviews of other conservators.
So AIC (American Institute of Conservation) are having their annual meeting. They have in this occation started a blog with the participating conservators. The funny thing is that they call it conservators converse, talk about coincidence!
