Abstract (in English)

"In 2003, the Getty Conservation Institute partnered with a number of research groups to create the Organic Materials in Wall paintings project. Its purpose was to enhance scientific support for the conservation of wall paintings by evaluating various investigative techniques and assessing their potential and limitations for the identification of organic materials in lime-based wall paintings. This project report summarizes the results of the collaboration and includes information on the techniques used for identification of organic materials and research results."
