Non-traditional materials in the ground layer of  paintings from the Danish Golden Age identified via MS-based proteomics

Cecil’s research focuses on painting’s technique, mechanical properties in paints and painting material including mechanical degradation related to climate control in museums/collections and the effect of structural conservation of canvas paintings. At present Cecil is involved with the Horizon2020 EU research and innovation project CollectionCare. The aim of this project is to create an integrated decision support system for small and medium size collections with regards to preventive conservation. This involves computer simulation of degradation scenarios for canvas paintings. Cecil is chair of the advisory board and member of the steering committee in this project.
