The Restoration of Paintings is an authoritative guide for restorers and those interested in art conservation and preservation. Knut Nicolaus's book is a most readable translation from German. It is both easy to read and to use many of the techniques described. While aimed at the professional restorer who demands assessment of the physical, chemical, and biological causes of damage to art, it has much to offer those simply wanting to learn about repair and preservation techniques.
