The Getty Conservation Institute: Conservation Perspectives

Since 1991, the Getty Conservation Institute (GCI) has been publishing Conservation Perspectives, a biannual newsletter dedicated to art conservation. Each newsletter centers on a specific theme and includes a number of related articles, along with updates about current projects and events at the GCI. For example, the Spring 2017 newsletter, "Imaging in Conversation," features an article by Giovanni Verri of London's Courtauld Institute of Art that discusses the many forms that images take in disciplines including art, archeology, and science and how the practice of imaging has changed over time. Another article in this issue explains how the GCI uses x-ray imaging techniques to uncover an artwork's history, including original techniques and restoration efforts. Finally, Fenella G. France of the Library of Congress's Preservation Research and Testing Division explores how digital imaging can be used to uncover new insights about documents including the Declaration of Independence. Other recent issue themes include Conserving Modern Paints, Conserving Modern Architecture, and Heritage Inventories.
