I pose this question to the readers of theDistList: Do youbelieve that the
techniques of wall-painting detachment, as risky as they are, should be
included in today's conservation curriculum?
I think you need to rethink yourquestion. In fact is your question relevant if
the choice for a wall paintingis detachment or destruction? Let me ask you
this: for what percentage ofpaintings that have been detached in the last – say
– 20 years, were these theoptions? Once you have deducted those from the number
detached, we willbe better informed to make a judgement.
