Prof. Dr Koller has been awarded the biennial Forbes Prize for
conspicuous services to conservation by the International Institute
for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works, its highest honour.

Prof. Dr Manfred Koller was the Chief of the Restoration
Laboratories of the Austrian Bundesdenkmalamt 1980 - 2005 and was a
lecturer in conservation and technology at the art academies and
universities in Vienna.  Prof. Dr Koller is the twenty-second
recipient of the Prize.

Prof. Dr Manfred Koller has published or collaborated in over 580
publications on the history of art, the technical history of art and
the conservation of paintings, polychrome sculpture, murals, stucco
work, stone and architectural surfaces.  Prof. Dr Koller was the
Austrian government's delegate to ICCROM 1972 - 92 and is a founding

from 2003 to 2011.  He was Editor of the IIC Austrian Section's

USA, in recognition of Edward W. Forbes's services to conservation.
The first Forbes Prize Lecture was given at the 1961 Rome Congress
by Harold Plenderleith and a Forbes Prize Lecture has been given at
each subsequent IIC Congress.
