This volume contains the papers presented at the ICON Paintings Group conference 'Wet Paint - Interactions between Water and Paintings' held in Edinburgh on 12th October 2018. There are many ways in which water and humidity can physically alter paintings, sometimes with disastrous effect e.g the staining of canvases; flaking and blanching paint; warping of wooden panels and cockling canvas supports. However, water is also a useful material for conservators that can be employed in the treatment of painted surfaces in the form of aqueous cleaning solutions, moisture treatments to reduce deformations and as a carrier for adhesives.

The aim of this book is to assemble a series of chapters, written by experts in their fields, covering the basics of color - and then some more. In this way, readers are supplied with almost anything they want to know about color outside their own area of expertise. Thus, the color measurement expert, as well as the general reader, can find here information on the perception, causes, and uses of color. For the artist there are details on the causes, measurement, perception, and reproduction of color. Within each chapter, authors were requested to indicate directions of future efforts, where applicable. One might reasonably expect that all would have been learned about color in the more than three hundred years since Newton established the fundamentals of color science. This is not true because: • the measurement of color still has unresolved complexities (Chapter 2) • many of the fine details of color vision remain unknown (Chapter 3) • every few decades a new movement in art discovers original ways to use new pigments, and dyes continue to be discovered (Chapter 5) • the philosophical approach to color has not yet crystallized (Chapter 7) • new pigments and dyes continue to be discovered (Chapters 10 and 11) • the study of the biological and therapeutic effects of color is still in its infancy (Chapter 2). Color continues to develop towards maturity and the editor believes that there is much common ground between the sciences and the arts and that color is a major connecting bridge.

"Emily Kame Kngwarreye (c. 1910-1996) was a senior member of the Anmatyerre community resident at Utopia, a former cattle station, now reclaimed by its Aboriginal land owners. She is widely regarded as one of the most notable Aboriginal artists of recent times and the pre-eminent woman artist of the desert region. The remarkable painterly and conceptual originality of her work extended her influence well beyond the previous reach of contemporary Aboriginal art and attracted widespread international interest." "This book looks at Emily Kngwarreye's paintings from very different viewpoints: Jennifer Isaacs approaches and explains their meaning as part of Anmatyerre women's culture, and gives a history of the art's development and patronage; Terry Smith examines the works as forming part of the leading edge of contemporary abstract painting; Judith Ryan describes and explores the major works by Emily Kngwarreye from the collection of the National Gallery of Victoria; and Donald and Janet Holt give personal accounts of Emily's art and life at Delmore Downs Station." --Book Jacket.

The medieval world does not end in Western Europe, and within the last twenty or so years some of the most stimulating art-historical discoveries have been made in the Near East. Moving beyond the confines of Jerusalem and Carthage, this volume considers the art of Armenia, Ethiopia, Coptic Egypt, Georgia, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and the Mongol East in relation to Byzantium, Cyprus, Italy, and the West. The Christian arts of the Near East, long considered naïve and provincial, are now being reconsidered for their complex liturgical and theological significance. The essays in this essential reference volume cover topics ranging from the classically inspired Christian iconography of Jordan's mosaics, sources and influences of style in Jerusalem and the West, and stylistic interaction between Ethiopia and Egypt to wooden carvings from Coptic Egypt and manuscripts from Antioch as well as icon painting in Lebanon and Cairo. Specific case studies on ivories from the Eastern Mediterranean, the Red Monastery Conservation Project, the Edessan Image of Christ, and the Marriage Charter of Otto II and Theophanu are accompanied by iconographical exposés of the Abgar Legend, the Biblical Sarah, and the Çintamani motif. The contributors are Susan H. Auth, Elizabeth S. Bolman, Erica Cruikshank Dodd, Anthony Cutler, Jaroslav Folda, Marilyn E. Heldman, Lucy-Anne Hunt, Mat Immerzeel, Adeline Jeudy, Catherine Jolivet-Lévy, Irma Karaulashvili, Hugo Meyer, Mati Meyer, William North, Michele Piccirillo, and Alexander Saminsky.

The present volume brings together the papers and posters presented at the Cleaning 2010 International--New Insights into the Cleaning of Paintings conference that was held at the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia in Spain, in collaboration with the Smithsonian's Museum Conservation Institute. This was the first major international conference on this topic in two decades. The 20 papers and 19 extended abstracts presented at the conference are included in this publication, grouped into four main categories: Ethics, Aesthetics, Training, and Documentation; Traditional Media: Egg Tempera and Oil; Modern Paints; and Cleaning Systems. Within each category, the papers and extended abstracts are grouped by the specific topic they address to make it easier for the reader to find all related material in one section. A summary of panel discussions held at the end of the conference has also been included. All papers and abstracts included in this publication have been peer reviewed. The aim of the conference was to provide a knowledge exchange forum and to produce a publication that assembles the latest developments in the various studies addressing the problems that affect paintings. These range from normal soiling to removal of aged varnishes, from the effect of solvents on paints to the subsequent changes in their mechanical behavior. The cleaning of unvarnished paintings is one of the most critical issues that was discussed. Finally, different cleaning techniques, such as gels, soaps, enzymes, ionic liquids, and foams, as well as various dry methods and lasers, are discussed in various papers and extended abstracts. Although the conference was organized in Spain, the United States contributed 21% of the contents, followed by Spain and Italy, both with 16%; the United Kingdom and Germany, each with 9%; and Canada, the Netherlands, and Portugal, all with 5%. The rest are individual contributions from Australia, Norway, Switzerland, Poland, and Greece. Publisher's note.

This thematically arranged short-essay reader emphasizes the reading-writing connection, critical thinking, and collaborative learning. The diverse readings are selected from a variety of genres for their currency, readability, high interest level, and cultural diversity. Presented within a unifying framework of personal identity, the selections lead students from a consideration of the self to an awareness of how the self interacts with other people and phenomena. A wealth of apparatus includes pre-reading questions and vocabulary as well as post-reading questions that promote comprehension, prompt analysis of the writer's use of rhetorical mode, and serve as writing assignments. Paired readings in each unit present different, often contrasting viewpoints, encouraging students to view subjects from different perspectives. At least one student essay in each unit provides realistic and motivating models of good writing.
