DVD on Chinese scroll mounting

The Conservation Department at the Art Gallery of New South Wales,
Australia has produced a beautiful DVD on scroll mounting within the
Chinese tradition. Sun Yu, Conservator for Asian works on paper
clearly demonstrates the basic techniques for mounting a painting
and shows each stage of the process. It is an invaluable resource
for paper conservators and an enjoyable film to watch. Of particular
interest are the methods shown for lining Chinese papers and silks,
plus gaining information on the complexities associated with
mounting. The film is in English and will be released shortly in
Mandarin and runs for 103 minutes. The DVD costs internationally $90
Australian, and nationally $85, including postage. All proceeds
benefit the Conservation Department and will support future
projects. Please contact
