This five-day workshop will explore newly developed analytical procedures for acquiring detailed compositional information about Asian lacquers, their additives, and their European substitutes. During the workshop, conservators and scientists will work together in research teams to study and discuss historic lacquer samples. It presents a unique opportunity for collaboration and discussion of topics such as the compositional variation in lacquered objects made in different countries and time periods, the relevance of analytical research to the conservation and interpretation, and the identification of research priorities and potential collaborations.

This workshop is a partnership of the Getty Conservation Institute, the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands (RCE) and the Rijks Museum.
