Barbara Appelbaum is one of the premier objects conservators in the United States. Practicing in New York, Appelbaum was trained at New York University and began her career at The Brooklyn Museum. The concepts of Conservation Treatment Methodology grew from that time; as the only objects conservator among paintings specialists, Appelbaum found herself having to provide the rationale for her treatment choices. The author treats objects from both museums and private individuals including artworks such as a Marcel DuChamps urinal, historical objects including George Washington's leather portfolio, and a well-known Marilyn Monroe dress. She relishes difficult and unusual conservation challenges-- gilded leather, embroidered and painted silk, and other unforgiving materials. The author is active in professional organizations. She publishes and lectures at seminars and meetings for conservators, architects and institutions. Her book, Guide to Environmental Protection of Collections (1991), became a classic in the field and is still in use today.Présentation de l'éditeur :
