Presentation by Jenny Boulboullé on the Burgundian Black Collaboratory, DHA Conference

The Dyes in History and Archaeology (DHA) is an annual conference that focuses on the discussion of dyes and organic pigments applied in the past. This includes their history, production, application and properties, as well as their analytical characterisation and identification, mainly in textile objects, but also on painted surfaces. Every year, the meeting attracts conservators, curators, (technical) art historians, craftsmen, artists, independent scholars, scientists and academics from museums, universities, research centres and other public or private institutions. The DHA38 will take place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, on 7 and 8 November 2019.

On 8 November (panel session 8), Natalia Ortega Saez, Jenny Boulboullé and Claudy Jongstra will give a presentation titled ‘The Burgundian Black Collaboratory: a look behind the scenes of an interdisciplinary research on black dyes’. More information here.
