conservation departments in most of the major museums. The company
was the result of a 5-year research project led by Rene de la Rie,
Head of the Science Dept., National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.;
Mark Leonard, Head of Conservation, J. Paul Getty Museum, Los
Angeles California; and Jill Whitten, Whitten Proctor Conservation,
