Offre de thèse : Degradation of polychromed metal foils in Van Eyck’s Ghent Altarpiece (Antwerp)

Logo University of Antwerp

You will work actively on the preparation and defence of a PhD thesis dedicated to the technical study of the Ghent Altarpiece. In particular, your work will focus on the chemical behaviour and degradation of the metal foils inside a complex paint system. The research will include paint material characterisation with the aim of understanding the degradation process allowing to support the ongoing conservation treatment. Chemical research will be supported by the specialised scientific laboratories at KIK-IRPA and UAntwerpen.
