Subject: Consolidation of gouache

Consolidation of gouache

From: Mitchell Hearns Bishop <mbishop>
Date: Thursday, May 5, 1994
We read the discussion initiated by Deborah Woodyard's inquiry about the
consolidation of gouaches with considerable interest.  We have the
publication in press mentioned by Dr. Preusser entitled, Matte Paint,
its history and technology, analysis, properties, and conservation
treatment , with special emphasis on ethnographic objects.  It will be
available in early June. Although the emphasis is on ethnographic
objects the primary concern is with matte paint found on any surface
including paper.  It consists of a textual introduction explaining the
concepts involved, approximately 1,200 annotated bibliographic citations
in four sections relating to the title, a schema, and a glossary of
terms.  The publication is a special supplement to Art and Archaeology
Technical Abstracts  which is published by the Getty Conservation
Institute in association with the IIC.  The authors of the original text
and editors of the bibliography are Eric Hansen, Sue Walston, and
Mitchell Hearns Bishop.  Eric and Mitchell can be reached at the email
addresses listed below.  The managing editor of  Art and Archaeology
Technical Abstracts, Jessica Brown, can be reached at the address below
for information about ordering the publication.
