Conservation of the Last Judgment mosaic, St. Vitus Cathedral, Prague

"Illustrated in color throughout, this volume presents selected papers from an international symposium marking the completion of a ten-year project to conserve the Last Judgment mosaic, at St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague. The project was a partnership between the Office of the President of the Czech Republic, the Prague Castle Administration, and the Getty Conservation Institute. These essays sketch the historical and art historical background and discuss the planning, methodology, implementation, and maintenance phases of the project, which involved conserving one of the finest examples of monumental medieval mosaic art in Europe."--Jacket
