PREF E
Beginning

 treatise
 on the
 conservation
 of
 ancient mar-ble, the J. Paul Getty Museum is pleased to initiate a series ofpublications dealing
 with
 the care of
 fine
 artworks. Subsequentvolumes will discuss
 the
 problems
 and
 treatment
 of
 other mate-rials,
 such
 as
 bronze, wood, plaster,
 and
 terra-cotta.This publication deals with the conservation of artworksmade
 of
 marble.
 A
 definition
 of the
 material will
 be
 followed
by descriptions of common problems and their treatment,beginning with those which occur above the
 surface
 of thestone
 and
 proceeding inward.
 The
 last section will
 be
concerned
 with
 elements of treatment, such as disassembly,reconstruction,
 and the
 final
 appearance
 of the
 sculpture.
