The Mechanical Behaviour and Environmental Response of Paintings to Three Types of Lining Treatment

Christina Young and Paul Ackroyd


This study investigates the mechanical response of canvas paintings before, during and after three different vacuum-lining processes with the following adhesives: glue-paste, wax-resin and BEVA 371. The purpose is to compare physical changes in a painting during lining and to assess the durability of a lined painting over a wide humidity range -5% – 85% relative humidity (RH) at ambient temperatures. Understanding the change in response of the lined painting will aid the assessment of a lining's ability to protect a painting from physical damage caused by changes in environmental conditions, in particular relative humidity.
