About the Book
This Festschrift "Recent Trends in Conservation of Art Heritage" is a humble dedication of the contributors to Dr. O.P Agrawal for his outstanding work in the field of conservation of art heritage There is an increasing awareness in the world today of the need for conservation every where, and it is but natural that attention would focus on the conservation and preservation of art heritage that mankind has created and inherited over the ages.

At present hardly any literature is available in a composite form on conservation of art heritage on the techniques of the world adopted in countries, situated in different climatic zones. This lacuna would be filled by the papers presented here, covering different branches of conservation science, including different types of materials like stone, paintings, paper, etc. The papers presented in this volume are in the form of review articles and case studies. The book, the only one of its type, should prove to be of immense interest to art lovers, conservationstudents and conservationists curators of museums all over the world. This volume contains 23 papers and 5 tributes. It has about 350 pages of text and is illustrated with figures and plates.
