Workshop on Characterizing Asian Lacquers
Centre de Recherche et de Restauration des Musees de France (C2RMF)
July 7-11, 2014

The Getty Conservation Institute (GCI) and the Centre de Recherche
et de Restauration des Musees de France (C2RMF) are pleased to
announce the 2014 Recent Advances in Characterizing Asian Lacquer
(RAdICAL) workshop to be hosted by C2RMF at the Louvre.

The five-day workshop will explore newly developed analytical
procedures for acquiring detailed compositional information about
Asian lacquer.  The workshop is based on collaborative research
undertaken by the Getty Conservation Institute and the J. Paul Getty
Museum, and is a unique opportunity for scientists and conservators
to work together in research teams to study and discuss historic
lacquer samples.

The cost of the workshop is US$500 and participants are responsible
for their own expenses.  The workshop is open to conservators,
scientists, and conservation scientists and applicants are
encouraged to propose a potential partner for the workshops when
they apply.  The deadline for application is April 5, 2014.  Full
details on workshop content, eligibility, and the application
procedure can be found at
