Subject: Greatness in art conservation

Greatness in art conservation

From: Joyce Hill Stoner <joyce.stoner>
Date: Monday, August 3, 1998
For a paper on "greatness" in twentieth-century art conservation I
would like to ask readers to respond to any or all of the following

    Who do you consider the "great" twentieth-century conservators
    of artistic and historic works?

    What does "greatness" mean in conservation?

        reputation?  (with curators/directors/peers?)
        prestige of works treated?
        position in museums or other institutions?
        founding a department, journal, program, etc.?

I need responses, please, in all categories:  paper, paintings,
objects, textiles, furniture, photographs, books and archives.

To "seed" thoughts: what about Plenderleith, Gettens and Stout,
Mario Modestini, William Suhr? The Kecks?  who else?
