How Scott Haskins’ got started in the professional field of art conservation.

I’m often asked, “How or why did you get into art conservation?”

As a kid growing up, I was always interested in science and the arts. That stayed with me through college. When I was about to get my bachelor’s degree, my art history program chair asked me if I had ever considered art conservation for graduate work. I had never even heard of it. Turns out, it was the perfect marriage of my two main interests: The application of science to the preservation and restoration of art.

My Formal Training

Most industrialized nations of the world have formal art conservation programs (I’m not talking about private restoration schools, trade schools or apprentice programs) where something comparable to a Masters Degree in the US can be obtained. The waiting lists to get into these university or government programs are usually long and reapplication is required for years. But, the stars aligned and I was admitted after my first application to the conservation center in Lombardy, Italy – a satellite program affiliated with the National Center in Rome (ICR).

The 1000 year old abbey where I worked on my first mural

The first week of classes, I was on scaffolding looking and getting instruction for working on an affresco dated 1365. With a big smile I pinched myself and said, “This is great!” I appreciated the experience knowing that other art conservation students around the world were going to have limited hands on experience, especially the first year. And here I was, already in the thick of things from the “get go.” I was not disappointed with my choice over the years. During my three year program, I worked on numerous Renaissance to Baroque affrescos in ancient abbeys, libraries and churches. I also worked on many small and very large canvases. We worked on site and in the state of the art laboratories of the conservation center.

I got instruction from seasoned professionals who had worked around the world on UNESCO projects (on murals in temples in Burma and in the tombs of Egypt) and who were well informed on international current standards of practice, and techniques especially after working with the international community in response to the devastating Florence Flood of 1966 (9 years earlier). Our professors and teachers came up from Rome and we went to Rome often to interact with the Istituto Centrale Del Restauro.

I graduated from the formal Italian government 3 year painting/mural conservation and restoration program in 1978.

As you can see, art conservation and restoration has specializations in the profession. I work on paintings; Paintings on walls (murals), paintings on canvas (easel paintings) and art on paper. I don’t work on books, furniture, stained glass windows, old cowboy boots, antique cars, ancient documents, mummies… just paintings.

From this point of the story onward, I’ll let you scroll through the background info in the navigation bar under the header photos. Also, here are a couple of newspaper articles:

  1. Nói đến những doanh nghiệp chế tạo hosting trong nước
    ko thể nói tới một mẫu tên là Azdigi. Người đứng
    sau thành công ngay bây giờ của Azdigi là Thạch Phạm.
    một blogger nổi tiếng có những bài hướng dẫn dùng WordPress.

    Miễn nhiếm có “cá mập”, vận tốc luôn duy trì ở mức cao mang mỗi lần đứt cáp là
    đặc điểm lạ lùng của Azdigi. ADG mang những gói cá nhân, nhà
    hàng và VPS cho bạn thoảthích lựa tậu.
    Azdigi đặt datacenter của mình tại 2 IDC to và
    uy tín nhất bây giờ của Viettel và FPT.
    Các bạn tưvấn của Azdigi cũng sở hữu kiến thức rất thấp và luôn hỗ trợ maau lẹ
    sở hữu mỗi thắc mắc của mình. Phải nói
    thêm rằng khả năng chịu tải caoo và
    vận tốc load trang nhanh của 1 nhà tiếp tế Việt Nam
    làm mình khá nổi bật có Azdigi. Điểm trừ làgiá thành của Azdigi sở hữu ccao hơn đối
    chiếu các nhà tiếp tế khác tại Việt Nam và chỉ cho
    sử dụng thử 7 ngày. Mình cũng đã tìm thử và sử dụng Azdigi, còn bạn thì sao?

  2. Muốn phục trang của bạn thêm chút tinh tế
    thì bạn sẽ phải khiến cho đa dạng thiết bị
    lắm. một đôi giầy tương thích là bước trước
    tiên. chắc hẳn rằng chuyện này ko phải quá cạnh tranh có các chị em phái đẹp đâu.
    sẽ khá tương thích nếu như khách hàng diện một vài
    cao gót. mang áo sơ mi, quần tây thì phải suy nghĩ đến một đôi Xanh đanh.
    quần jeans luôn diện chung sở hữu sneaker.
    mang ra ngoài khiến việc mà lại phải có gót cao đứng nắng thì quá đáng sợ.
    dựa vào âu phục các nàng mang ra sao thì các chị
    cần phải mua ra một vài giày thực phù hợp.

  3. phụ kiện sẽ giúp cho những âu phục
    công sở trở thành xinh hơn. phổ biến nhất là đồng hồ, cài áo.Chúng có tương đối
    nhiều tiện lợi cho việc gây ấn tượng với quý khách.
    đồng hồ đầy đủ là món phụ kiện thời trang quan trọng nhất.
    Chỉ nên biết phương pháp phối kết hợp khéo léo thì các bạn sẽ
    sở hữu đủ sự khá nổi bật thiết yếu.
    Cài áo nhìn vậy chứ có tác dụng không hề nhỏ đó ha.
    Nhớ ưu tiên các trang bị nhỏ mà tuyệt
    đẹp nhak. đừng sắm các phụ kiện quá lướt
    thướt nhak. Chúng có chứcnăng ngược ngay đấy.

  9. áo thun đã từng chỉ là trang bị được dùng của các các chị em phái đẹp
    phái nam nhưng bây giờ nữ giới cũng
    đã dùng được. cùng với nhiều color khác nhau có mặt trên thị
    trường thì gần như người mua cũng có tương
    đối nhiều sự lựa chọn. áophông thun trắng ko còn là sự chọn lựa
    duy nhất. áo co dãn giờ cũng có nhiều màu

    đó chính là thứ độc nhất vô nhị mà níu kéo được
    các bạn nữ giới. các nàng thường dễ xiêu lòng bằng mấy thứ dễ
    thương và đáng yêu lắm. bằng không thì còn lâu
    mới làm cho ưng ý các chị em.

  34. Hi there! I understand this is kind of off-topic however
    I needed to ask. Does running a well-established blog like yours require a lot of work?

    I’m completely new to operating a blog but I do write
    in my journal everyday. I’d like to start
    a blog so I can easily share my own experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand
    new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

  35. I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  36. ps4 games says:

    You made some really good points there. I checked on the internet for additional
    information about the issue and found most people will
    go along with your views on this website.

  37. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance”
    between usability and visual appeal. I must say you have done a superb job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Firefox.
    Excellent Blog!

  38. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do
    with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.
    Thanks

  40. You actually make it seem so easy with your
    presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for
    me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
