Call for papers--Retouching

From: Lucy Tetlow <britassocpaintings>
Date: Friday, November 10, 2006
Call for papers and demonstrators
Retouching Complex Surfaces
ICON Paintings Group/British Association of Paintings
    Conservator-Restorers (BAPCR)

Courtauld Institute of Art, London
20 April 2007

Deadline for submissions: 10 December 2006

Speakers are invited to submit proposals for the third in a series
of Retouching Conferences run jointly by ICON Paintings Group and
BAPCR on Friday 20th April 2007.

The theme is practical solutions to complex retouching issues.

Complexity can encompass a wide range of topics from matching
glossy, matt, or unvarnished surfaces to the invisible retouching of
textured, colourfield or mixed media paintings; the selection of
retouching mediums for modern solvent-sensitive paint; to ethical
issues that influence the extent and nature of the retouching.

The emphasis will be on practical methods and innovative solutions.

As at the previous conferences, a series of lectures will be held in
the morning, followed by informal demonstrations the afternoon.
Proposals for lectures or for practical demonstrations are welcome.

Please send your submission of up to 300 words to
