Art Restoration
By Francis Kelly

The work of the art restorer today is shrouded in mystique. Here his methods and techniques, his problems and his responsibilities are clearly and openly described for everyone interested in fine art. The misconceptions surrounding the subject are gently removed, and the book examines just what a restorer may be called upon to do and how he tackles it.

The stages in the restoration of a painting are taken in turn, the descriptions of practical procedures being based upon the author's own experience, as an artist himself, of techniques and materials. Mistakes made in the past by artists and restorers provide interesting points of contrast, and chapters on forgeries and their detection and on the damage done to works of art in the Florence flood disaster show how the restorer's knowledge can be put to dramatic, as well as everyday, use. Excellent illustrations, including two in full colour, a bibliography and a list of suppliers complete an invaluable and unusual book.
