Lining Large Paintings Highlighted by American Institute for the Conservation of historic and Artistic Works


An action photo of the lining process (art restoration treatment) of three 30′ paintings in this month’s header of the Facebook page of the AIC, highlighted the art conservation practice of Fine Art Conservation Laboratories. Independent art conservators are represented within AIC in an organization, Conservators in Private Practice (CIPP) and have businesses ranging from sole proprietorships to large companies, they provide support for clients such as artists, private collectors, galleries, corporations, museums, universities, and governmental agencies.

Lining Buck Winn AIC

September’s cover image features AIC Professional Associate Scott Haskins (left) of Fine Art Conservation Laboratories, Inc., who is also a former chair (for 6 years) of the CIPP specialty group. In the image, conservation professionals are lining three sections of the the previously detached 280′ long mural by Buck Winn, “The History of Ranching in Texas”. The murals are in the collection of the Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas.

The three 30′ sections of the mural required lead abatement, paint consolidation, distortion removal, rip repairs, lining, cleaning, fills and inpainting, and varnishing. FACL, Inc. is certified for toxic materials abatement such as lead and asbestos. There are several videos on YouTube that show the detaching process of murals and their reinstallation options. Here is the YouTube channel for mural restoration videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE1FF71CC598A8E79

Haskins worked with painting conservators Julie Stephenson, Oriana Montemurro, Virginia Panizzon and conservation technicians Diane Stevenett and Daniel Masters (who are also featured in the above image).  More information on the project and a short video can be found here: http://www.fineartconservationlab.com/murals/the-art-restoration-of-texass-most-famous-lost-public-art-by-the-most-famous-texan-artist-you-never-heard-of/
