Papers presented at the third technical art history conference organised by the Center for Art Technological Studies and Conservation (CATS) at the National Museum of Denmark in 2016. The aim of the meeting was to explore tradition and changes in artistic practices seen in the light of the establishment of several national art academies in Europe throughout the previous century with a focus on artists’ techniques and materials, written sources, conservation science, history of trade, and innovation of artists’ materials during the first half of the 19th century - a period also known in Denmark as the Golden Age.

Whether based on art historical interests or studies of our material culture, the current volume will be of interest to academic scholars and students as well as museum professionals, curators, conservators, art historians and conservation scientists.
