Glossary of Conservation I
Paperback, ISBN 84-89321-01-9, 174 pages, February 2005, 45 Euro, 30

Glossary of Conservation I is the first dictionary written in
English about conservation concepts. The glossary/dictionary
provides not only definitions of conservation terms, but also gives
references to previously published sources. For example: "Impasto:
The thick application of paint of a pasty consistency with a brush
or palette knife in order to obtain relief. Source: Narcise"

Audience: Art historians, conservators, restorers and curators.

The Author: Mireia Xarrie Poveda is an art historian (Universitat
Autonoma de Barcelona, 1994) and art restorer (third generation of a
family with a long tradition in art conservation,
<URL:>). In addition to her experience
in the Barcelona-based family restoration business, she worked on
several international conservation projects (e.g. mural paintings in
Basel, Switzerland and Oxirrinc, Egypt).
