The Care of Bronze Sculpture was written for the collector of fine art cast and/or fabricated in bronze, giving various recommended maintenance programs both for indoor as well as outdoor environments. These programs are written in order to give the art collector choices on various levels of protection necessary for such surroundings. Detailed step by step instructions along with corresponding photos take the collector through this easy process of cleaning and waxing newer bronze castings. Various commercially available paste waxes used in the traditional protection of bronze sculpture are also discussed in detail. In the fourth edition of this award winning book, a new chapter titled Maintaining Art in Public Places has been added for artwork installed in a public setting, and the vast differences there are between maintaining art in a private collection as opposed to art within the public s domain. This chapter explains in detail how best to go about maintaining public art and these recommendations are based upon and structured according to the Code of Ethics And Guidelines for practice set forth by the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC) as well as the author s personal experiences dealing with conservation issues involving public art in many municipalities and large private collections on public display. Such vital information such as placement, explaining the true importance of a qualified and experienced fine arts objects conservator and their duties, and above all, what recommended maintenance procedures should be followed for the best protection possible, are all discussed in detail. Many professional sculptors and art dealers have been giving this book as gifts to new and established collectors in order to give their clients the utmost information on how best to protect and preserve their newly purchased bronze sculpture for many years of enjoyment.
