3rd ENAMEL Meeting at the Frick

Friday 08 October - Saturday 09 October 2010
(Categories: ICOM-CC, Glass and Ceramics, Metals)

After Chateau de Germolles in Burgundy 2006 and the Villa Medici in Rome 2008 it's now the Frick Collection in New York: The third conference of the ENAMEL specialist group will take part on October 8 and 9, 2010, shortly after the Glass and Ceramics WG Interim Meeting in Corning. All conservators, collectors, students, artists, and scholars interested in techniques and conservation of enamel on metals are invited to attend. During this two-day event, a wide range of papers will be delivered by a group of international specialists (see for a list of speakers). The 2010 meeting is a day and a half of lectures including a panel discussion and a half-day to visit enamel collections in New York. The event is coordinated by The Frick Collection’s Assistant Conservator, Julia Day, and Assistant WG Co-ordinator, Agnès Gall-Ortlik. The lectures will cover issues related to the preservation of enamels, new scientific research, and technical and art historical studies. The panel discussion will feature experts who will discuss the conservation and analysis of enamels. The results from this discussion will be reviewed at the end of the meeting and will create a foundation for current methodology in these areas. A reception, coffee breaks, self-guided tour, and extended abstracts will be included in the event. Early registration through the Frick website is advised (100 US$, 50 US$ for students) as the number of places is limited.
