NZCCM Conference: Living Heritage: Materials, Methods and Context

Auckland Art Gallery

Heritage is a living, active part of our communities. Conservation needs to be both responsive to each individual situation and responsible within its own set of wider professional ethics. As conservators, we are aware that our work takes place within a larger cultural context. Whilst preservation remains at the core of what we do, we are at the intersection of materials based conservation and values-based approaches.

Obituary: Andrea Rothe

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Andrea Rothe who served as Senior Conservator of Paintings at the Getty Museum for over twenty years. Born in Italy of German parents, he studied conservation in Florence and Vienna and was an assistant to the artist Oskar Kokoschka before becoming a private conservator for the Italian state. He worked on a number of important paintings at museums and churches across Italy, and eventually became head of the prominent paintings conservation studio housed at the Pitti Palace. Equally notable was his role in saving many paintings damaged in the Arno flooding (1966) as well as his presence at many professional conferences, which made him an international figure in the conservation field.
