The Broad Spectrum: The Art and Science of Conserving Colored Media
on Paper
October 5-9-1999
An international conference sponsored and hosted by The Art
Institute of Chicago with the cooperation of the AIC, IIC and IPC

Color on Paper presents significant challenges and research
opportunities for paper conservators and conservation scientists.
This conference will address recent advances in the understanding of
a broad array of colors media, including chalk, pastel, watercolor,
gouache, and ink, applied to paper.  Presentations on the history
and development of these materials, their uses by various artists,
their physical properties, and criteria for their identification
will be featured, as will conservation case studies and the ethical
issues that surround them.

The four day conference will commence on Tuesday, October 5, 1999
with registration, an evening reception, and an opportunity to view
'Ellsworth Kelly: Early Drawings'.  The twenty-eight speakers who
will present talks over the course of the following three and half
days will include Peter Bower (paper historian and analyst) on
watercolor and pastel supports; Vincent Daniels (British Museum) on
the damaging effects of iron and copper on paper and pigments;
Margaret Holben Ellis (Institute of Fine Arts, NYU) on daylight
fluorescent colors as artistic media; Marjorie Shelley (Metropolitan
Museum of Art) on the pastel palettes, 1500-1900; Joyce Townsend
(Tate Gallery) on the analysis of watercolor materials; and Faith
Zieske (Philadelphia Museum of Art) on Cezanne's watercolor palette.
Works of art related to the program will be on display throughout
the museum.
