Within the context of safeguarding tangible heritage for current and future generations, 20th- and 21st-century oil paintings are presenting a range of challenging problems that are distinctly different from those noted in paintings from previous centuries.
This Cleaning Modern Oil Paints project aims to make a significant impact on our understanding of the reasons behind the alarming problems by exploring several aspects of paint formulations. New cleaning systems will be tested for works of art in several internationally significant public collections.
CMOP is a Joint Programme Initiative Heritage Plus EU-project, partly funded by EU/H2020, partly by NWO, AHRC and MIUR.
