detachment of chromatic layers

The detachment of chromatic layers is one of the most worrisome problems in painting conservation, sometimes resulting in the loss of original materials. The solution for this problem involves the re-adhesion of the paint layer to the support with an appropriate adhesive, taking into account the characteristics of the constituting materials of the artwork. In addition to performing this curative action, it is essential to understand what is causing the detachment to prevent its reappearance: an intrinsic problem (e.g. incompatibility between materials) or an extrinsic problem (e.g. damage caused by impact or exposure to extreme HR variations).
