We have had a number of donations from well wishers recently and the latest comes from Irina Dolgikh who has given the Library some fantastic books on conservation of paintings.
Irina trained in painting conservation with a particular interest in icons. Her donation enhances our paintings conservation section, particularly the two conference publications, Early Italian Paintings, Techniques and Analysis, papers from a symposium held in Maastricht in October 1996, and Painted Wood: History and Conservation, papers from a symposium in Williamsburg VA in November 1994.
We’re very grateful to Irina for these new reference books!
