THE IN SITU TREATMENT OF THE WALLPAPER IN THE STUDY OF THE LONGFELLOW NATIONAL HISTORIC SITE

Thomas K. McClintock


ABSTRACT—The conservation of a room with the wallpaper painted one color is discussed in the context of a continuing project at a historic house. The treatment problems of such a wallpaper are contrasted with those of patterned wallpapers. The wallpaper was surface cleaned, mended, readhered to the wall at areas of detachment, and losses were filled and inpainted. The advantages and disadvantages of several treatment procedures and materials are discussed.
