The mechanical and structural behavior of paintings is an important field encompassing a number of topics in conservation ranging from their measurement and evaluation; how to record and document the condition and changes occurring; and how to monitor, analyze and predict potential problems. The interim meeting will bring together a diverse range of experts and professionals to address the various issues, methodologies, research and solutions currently being used.
The conference will feature 26 presentations and will include sessions on Tools & Documentation, Painting Support, Paint Layers, Conservation as well as a special session on environmental guidelines.
The conference will take place over two days (29-30th September 2016) and is organized by the ICOM-CC Paintings, Preventive Conservation and Documentation Working Groups in association with the Institut National du Patrimoine (INP) and the University of Paris Panthéon-Sorbonne.
