Conservation image Nitrogen Anoxia Research (1987–1999)
A project of the Getty Conservation Institute

In 1993 Getty staff assisted the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in treating Back Seat Dodge '38 (1964), a sculpture by Edward Kienholz in LACMA's collection. Suffering from an infestation of cloth moths, the artwork was treated using nontoxic eradication methods developed by the GCI. Photo: Shin Maekawa.
