Conservation of the Mazarin Chest

Conservation of the Mazarin Chest

Treatment of the Mazarin Chest took place within the Conservation Department at the V&A. Whilst restoration seeks to return things to a previous, more perfect state, conservation seeks to minimise deterioration and pass the object on to the future with as little permanent change as possible. The first step in the conservation of the Mazarin Chest was to understand as much as possible about how it was made. マザラン・チェストの保存修復はV&Aの保存修復部を現場として行われました。修復作業とは、対象資料を、元の、より完全な状態に戻すことを目的とするのに対して、保存作業とは、劣化を最小限に押さえ、恒久的な変化をなるべくもたらさずに、対象資料を将来に托すことを趣旨とします。マザラン・チェストの保存作業は、まず、その制作技法をできるだけ理解することから始まりました。
