Cover: Jan Wouters (Head of Laboratory at the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage, Brussels), a visiting scientist at the Getty Conservation Institute (Los Angeles), and Cecily Grzywacz, a Getty Conservation Institute scientist, discuss the construction, sampling, and analysis of a mock-up of ancient Chinese wall painting materials containing both inorganic pigment paints and an organic pigment glaze. Research on historical reconstructions can lead to better diagnosis of sources of materials and lower levels of destructiveness when studying historical objects.
