In this Spanish-language volume, twenty international authorities in stained-glass conservation and related fields address the history, aesthetics, and conservation of stained glass. The book presents the results of an international seminar on the conservation of stained glass, held in Spain in July 1994. Among the subjects discussed are the weathering of medieval stained glass, its chemical structure, the effects of corrosion, and techniques used for analysis of this historic material.
Miguel Angel Corzo is the former director of the Getty Conservation Institute. Nieves Valentín is researcher at the Instituto del Patrimonio Histórico Español in Madrid.
