Alternatives to Lining
edited by Mary Bustin and Tom Caley
Since the influential conference ‘Comparative Lining Techniques’ held in Greenwich, in 1974, conservators have undertaken research to expand our understanding of how a canvas painting is constructed and how it responds to its environment and our actions. As a result, lining has ceased to be the main solution to the repair of torn or deformed paintings. This conference explores some of the alternatives to lining paintings, especially where tears are the problem.
BAPCR and UKIC Paintings Section are delighted to collaborate on this conference, held at Tate Britain on 19th September 2003.
