This second part (continued from Vol. 9) of an account of the restoration of The Incredulity of Saint Thomas by Cima da Conegliano is a detailed survey of the materials and techniques used to make the altarpiece. Some 60 samples of paint were studied in cross-section and analyzed by spectrographic laser microprobe, X-ray diffraction, gas chromatography, mass spectroscopy, and high performance liquid chromatography. Support, ground, underdrawing, and medium are discussed in addition to the pigments.
