Safeguarding the cultural and natural heritage in the face of ever-growing consumer demand involves a new vision of conservation and carefully thought out policies that are put into place before damage is done. In Catheline Périer-D’Ieteren’s words, ‘It is better to carry out preventive conservation than active conservation, and to conserve rather than to restore or renovate.’ The author is professor of the History of Art at the Free University of Brussels and was chairperson of the Conservation Committee of the International Council of Museums (ICOM-CC) from 1993 to 1996. She is a member of the Royal Academy of Archaeology of Belgium and the author of numerous lectures, papers and publications on the pictorial technique of fifteenth- and sixteenth-century Flemish painters, Brabant reredos of the same period, the application of scientific investigation methods to the study of works of art and the problems of conservation and restoration.
