TREATMENT AND MOUNTING OF CERES, A LARGE MURAL PAINTING ON FABRIC BY JOHN NORTON
ABSTRACT—A large 20th-century mural painting on fabric support, executed in a medium characteristic of oil, was received for conservation treatment rolled on a large fiber board cylinder. It was in two pieces, and covered at the rear with two layers of white lead paint and layers of wall plaster. The proposed treatment included cleaning front and rear and mounting painting on a specially designed rigid support with consideration given to its safe reversability. The planning of the work, procedures, materials and formulas are described.
