ADAM KARPOWICZ received his M.Sc. degree in chemistry from the University of Warsaw, Poland, and subsequently a M.A. degree in conservation of paintings from the Academy of Fine Arts, Warsaw. His research interests are in the structure and the dimensional response of paintings for the New Brunswick provincial government.
