Georg Solti

Georg Solti, 1987

The 2018 Icon Book & Paper Conference takes place in Oxford, England, from October 1 – 3. The conference “aims to explore the conservator’s approach to treating objects such as artists’ sketchbooks or authors’ manuscripts: paper-based items which were not necessarily created with posterity in mind.”

The book conservator for the Harvard Library, Catherine Badot-Costello, is working on the conservation of the Solti archive of conductor’s scores and will include this portrait of Solti in her presentation Capturing the Marks of the Maestro; Conservation, Digitization and Preservation of Material Evidence in the Sir Georg Solti Archive on day one of the conference.
