Reconstructions of Historical Recipes to clean Oil Paintings

This project is sponsored by the Amsterdam University Fund campaign 2014.

This project aims to improve the understanding of past cleaning treatments of Old Master paintings. As of yet, it is not possible to connect damage patterns with historical treatment methods. By reconstructing historical recipes and cleaning methods, a connection will become possible between recipes and damage patterns in paintings. An important outcome of this project will be an open-access database.
