Paints intended for houses, boats, cars, and other industrial applications frequently turn up in modern art collections, posing new challenges for paintings conservators. This volume presents the papers and posters from qModern Paints Uncovered, q a symposium organized by the Getty Conservation Institute, Tate, and the National Gallery of Art and held at Tate Modern, London, in May 2006.

These include paint properties and surface characteristics, analysis and identification, aging behavior, and safe and effective conservation techniques.Dictated by Media: Conservation Paints and Coatings Used and Technical Analysis of a 1938 in Outdoor Murals Burlap ...
