ICOM-CC Sculpture, Polychromy, and Architectural Decoration Working Group Interim Meeting

"Polychrome Sculpture: Decorative Practice and Artistic Tradition"
ICOM-CC Working Group Sculpture, Polychromy, and Architectural
Decorations Interim Meeting
Tomar Polytechnic Institute
Tomar, Portugal
28-29 May, 2013

This two day symposium will focus on artistic tradition within the
field of polychrome sculpture relating to decorative practice. After
two symposiums on construction techniques (Maastricht 2010 and
Glasgow 2012), the main focus will now be on decorative practices,
from painting materials, to varnishes or metal leaf applications,
etc.

The meeting will be hosted by the Polytechnic Institute, Tomar
(Portugal). Tomar is well known for the Convent of the Order of
Christ (12th century),--originally a Templar stronghold--and one of
Portugal's most important historical and artistic monuments,
classified as World Heritage by UNESCO in 1983. The Polytechnic
Institute provides training for conservators in the form of a Master
degree course in Conservation and Restoration.

The organizing committee and the ICOM-CC working group Sculpture,
Polychromy, and Architectural Decoration have selected papers and
posters related to decorative practices within the field of
polychrome sculpture and the conservation treatment of these
objects. Several decorative techniques will be addressed such as
painting techniques from different regions, gilding, estofado, use
of incised and punched patterns, varnishes, lacquers, applications,
etc.

The meeting will provide a forum for discussion between
conservators, conservation scientists, researchers, educators and
curators to discuss artistic practice within the field of polychrome
sculpture. The symposium aims to bring together international
experts on polychrome decorative practice and to provide an
opportunity for the worldwide conservation community to exchange new
research, experiences and expertise within this field.
