How we value or look at works of art can be a subjective and constantly shifting cultural aesthetic. In this lecture, Boris Brindar, a longtime art conservationist discusses how art history, art appreciation and the business of art, and various art forms have evolved over time. The lecture will include a discussion of artistic and technical components of artwork and the basic procedures and peculiarities of art conservation and restoration.
