PAinT - Paint Alterations in Time

Mission Statement

The PAinT project aims to provide an improved scientific basis to guide future conservation strategies. A better understanding of the underlying mechanism and what they are influenced by is crucial for the evaluation of past and present approaches to the conservation of oil paintings.

The PAinT team will investigate ageing, deterioration and migration processes in oil paints related to pigment-binding medium interactions. In a combined approach scientific experiments on mature oil paint model systems will be linked to the analysis of paintings by old and early modern masters.
