This volume represents 27 peer-reviewed papers presented at the ICOP 2013 symposium which will help conservators and curators recognise problems and interpret visual changes on paintings, which in turn give a more solid basis for decisions on the treatment of these paintings. The subject matter ranges from developments of paint technology, working methods of individual artists, through characterisation of paints and paint surfaces, paint degradation vs. long time stability, to observations of issues in collections, cleaning and other treatment issues as well as new conservation approaches.

The series Topics in Current Chemistry Collections presents critical reviews from the journal Topics in Current Chemistry organized in topical volumes. The scope of coverage is all areas of chemical science including the interfaces with related disciplines such as biology, medicine and materials science. The goal of each thematic volume is to give the non-specialist reader, whether in academia or industry, a comprehensive insight into an area where new research is emerging which is of interest to a larger scientific audience.Each review within the volume critically surveys one aspect of that topic and places it within the context of the volume as a whole. The most significant developments of the last 5 to 10 years are presented using selected examples to illustrate the principles discussed. The coverage is not intended to be an exhaustive summary of the field or include large quantities of data, but should rather be conceptual, concentrating on the methodological thinking that will allow the non-specialist reader to understand the information presented. Contributions also offer an outlook on potential future developments in the field.

Chemicals and Methods for Conservation and Restoration

Paintings, Textiles, Fossils, Wood, Stones, Metals, and Glass

Before the 1970s, most information concerning the conservation and restoration of paintings, wood, and archaeological artefacts were focused on the history of the artefacts, previous attempts of conservation, and the future use of these artefacts. The technical methods of how the restoration and conservation were made were dealt with only very briefly. Today, sophisticated methods of scientific analysis such as DNA are common place, and this encourages conservators and scientists to work together to work out the development of new methods for analysis and conservation of artefacts. This book focuses on the chemicals used for conservation and restoration of various artefacts in artwork and archaeology, as well as special applications of these materials. Also the methods used, both methods for cleaning, conservation and restoration, as well as methods for the analysis of the state of the respective artefacts. Topics include oil paintings, paper conservation, textiles and dyes for them, archaeological wood, fossils, stones, metals and metallic coins, and glasses, including church windows.

Hans Hofmann

The Artist's Materials

The career of the German-American painter and educator Hans Hofmann (1880–1966) describes the arc of artistic modernism from pre–World War I Munich and Paris to mid twentieth-century Greenwich Village. His career also traces the transatlantic engagement of modern painting with the materials of its own making, a relationship that is perhaps still not completely understood. In these interrelated narratives, Hofmann is a central protagonist, providing a vital link between nineteenth- and twentieth-century art practice and between European and American modernism. The remarkable vitality of his later work affords insight not only into the style but also the literal substance of this formative period of artistic and material innovation. This richly illustrated book, the fourth in the Getty Conservation Institute’s Artist’s Materials series, presents a thorough examination of Hofmann’s late-career materials. Initial chapters present an informative overview of Hofmann’s life and work in Europe and America and discuss his crucial role in the development of Abstract Expressionism. Subsequent chapters present a detailed analysis of Hofmann’s materials and techniques and explore the relationship of the artist’s mature palette to shifts in the style and aging characteristics of his paintings. The book concludes with lessons for the conservation of modernist paintings generally, and particularly those that incorporate both traditional and modern paint media. This book will be of value to conservators, art historians, conservation scientists, and general readers with an interest in modern art.

An anthology based on contemporary art issues being addressed in the art world, in critical theory, in education and in art education, Contemporary Issues in Art Education provides a complex of conceptual frameworks within three sections—theoretical frameworks, content, and pedagogical strategies. The contributors—art educators from the United States and Canada— suggest in both theoretical and practical terms ways to teach art that explore issues such as personal identity, difference, visual culture and the popular media, the environment, aging, and narrative, as well as examining issues of race, gender, and ethnicity. The readings provide an issues-based approach to art education and address schooling as socialization, issues as content and context, the traditions of art education, educational theories, visual art and visual culture. For future and current art educators and others interested in teaching art to children.

Der international renommierte und vielfach ausgezeichnete Komponist und Theatermacher Heiner Goebbels ist ein Grenzgänger zwischen den Künsten. Theater ist für ihn ein komplexes Wechselspiel zwischen Klang, Licht, Raum und der Wahrnehmung des Zuschauers. An die Stelle von Repräsentation tritt das Spiel mit der Abwesenheit von Figur, dramatischer Handlung und des Schauspielers im Zentrum der Aufmerksamkeit. Es ist diese Abwesenheit, die der Imagination des Zuschauers einen Spielraum eröffnet und eine ästhetische Erfahrung ermöglicht. Heiner Goebbels hat seine künstlerische Arbeit und die zeitgenössische Theaterpraxis immer auch theoretisch reflektiert. Der vorliegende Band ver- sammelt seine wichtigsten Aufsätze, Vorträge und Mitschriften aus den letzten zehn Jahren.

Often seen as dark and gloomy, oils can, in fact, be used to create colourful and light paintings that are wonderfully expressive. One significant characteristic of oil paint is its richness and depth of colour, something that is of particular interest to Nicholas Verrall. Immediately striking in all his pictures is the skilful way he handles colour to interpret the special qualities of light and mood found in a certain moment in time. In this book he discusses his working methods and the importance of colour, at the same time placing these issues within the general context of painting in oils, with all that this has to offer. 'Colour and Light in Oils' includes information, demonstrations and many inspirational finished paintings to help painters understand the value of colour in interpreting ideas with feeling and impact. It provides guidance on a wide range of skills, techniques and advice on subject matter and associated topics. Illustrated throughout, the book covers: the medium of oils; understanding oils; materials and equipment; painting techniques; and the studio
