Metal soaps in Art

Created on Tuesday, 15 September 2015

14-15 March, 2016, Rijksmuseum Amsterdam

Since the discovery of metal soap-related degradation phenomena in paintings at the beginning of this century, thousands of art objects affected by metal soap degradation have been recognized. The conference will bring together art historians, conservators and scientists to present the current status in metal soap-related degradation and to discuss conservators’ needs for characterization, treatment, implications for appearance, as well as the analytical challenges involved.


The conference incorporates an innovative workshop which will serve as a platform for discussion and where future research objectives will be defined.
The 2-day conference comprises of presentations by invited speakers and poster sessions with pitches, followed by the workshop.

The call for abstracts is now open. The deadline for submission is 1 November 2015
