Mummy Portraits of Roman Egypt - Emerging Research from the APPEAR Project Summary

Mummy Portraits of Roman Egypt - Emerging Research from the APPEAR Project by Marie Svoboda

Once interred with mummified remains, nearly a thousand funerary portraits from Roman Egypt survive today in museums around the world, bringing viewers face-to-face with people who lived two thousand years ago. Until recently, few of these paintings had undergone in-depth study to determine by whom they were made and how. An international collaboration known as APPEAR (Ancient Panel Paintings: Examination, Analysis, and Research) was launched in 2013 to promote the study of these objects and to gather scientific and historical findings into a shared database. The first phase of the project, was marked with a two-day conference at the Getty Villa. Conservators, scientists, and curators presented new research on such topics as provenance and collecting, comparisons of works across institutions, and scientific studies of pigments, binders, and supports. The papers and posters from the conference are presented in this online publication, which offers the most up-to-date information available about these fascinating remnants of the ancient world.
