Wood used in Italian panel paintings

From: Carl Villis <ngvcons>
Date: Friday, February 11, 2000
I'd like to know if anyone is aware of any recent research into wood
types used for sixteenth century Central and Northern Italian panel
paintings.  I am looking at a painting painted on walnut and would
like to get a clearer idea of the prevalence of walnut as a painting
support at this time.
