St Luke’s Secrets: Pigment Analysis of Illuminated Manuscripts
In collaboration with the Hamilton Kerr Institute and the Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge, the Fitzwilliam Museum has launched a new research project on the pigment analysis of illuminated manuscripts. St Luke’s secrets will run as a two-year trial project (October 2011-September 2013) thanks to the generosity of a private donor and the support of the Newton Trust.
Cambridge Illuminations Research Project
The project, which began in 2003 with a three-year grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council and continued with a one-year grant from the Modern Humanities Research Association (2007), is now supported entirely by a private sponsor.
