Quantcast
From Plumber to Glazier: The Story of Stained Glass Restoration

For the Sundays at the Met program An Old World Art Form for the New World: Issues in the History of Conservation, Collecting, and American Designs for Stained-Glass Windows, a group of experts, conservators and curators explore the history of stained glass, from its creation to its conservation, its design to its collection.

Beginning in medieval Europe, Professor Sebastian Strobl outlines the history of stained glass restoration. Medieval restorations were done in the contemporary painting techniques and style, making clear the distinctions between restored panes and original panes. In nineteenth-century restorations, radically different mistakes were made in reconstruction. Strobl sheds light on some of the lessons today’s restorers can take from this history.

Sebastian Strobl, Professor of Glass Conservation, University of Applied Sciences, Erfurt, Germany; introduced by Lisa Pilosi, conservator, Sherman Fairchild Center for Objects Conservation, The Metropolitan Museum of Art
