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.
