Collaboration and Connections: Postprints of the AICCM Paper, Books and Photographic Materials Special Interest Group Symposium, Sydney 1-3 April 2004, pp. 41-45
Investigations into the media used by Fred Williams for a specific group of works, led to the exciting discovery of a comprehensive archive of receipts and invoices for artist’s materials in the care of Lyn Williams. The National Gallery of Victoria has been very fortunate to be able to make a complete copy of these documents and has entered the information into an electronic database. This paper will cover some of the types of materials purchased, briefly explain the layout of the database and discuss some preliminary analysis. It is hoped that this information may be useful to colleagues in the conservation profession and related fields.
