The characteristics of pre-primed canvases are being investigated in a collaborative project by the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane and the Heritage Conservation Centre, Singapore. The study aims to enhance understanding of potential influences of canvas and priming type on conservation care. This presentation reports initial findings characterising binder and fibre type for 53 samples sourced in Australia and Singapore, including four oil-primed canvases.
