This two-day conference marks the end of a four-year Getty initiative on the study of ancient panel painting from Roman Egypt. The presentations and posters will be given by project participants highlighting the collaborative work, investigations, observations and data collected to date. The conference is open to the public, however it is targeted towards a scholarly and engaged audience interested in ancient panel painting methods and materials.
In 2013, the J. Paul Getty Museum’s Department of Antiquities Conservation launched the APPEAR (Ancient Panel Paintings: Examination, Analysis, and Research) Project. The mission of this project is to increase the understanding of ancient painting technology, its production, materials, clues to workshop and artistic practice. Participating institutions research their collections and contribute results into a shared database. The collective information obtained from numerous entries not only promotes comparison between the artifacts but helps develop a broader understanding of materials and technology in the ancient world.
