Professor Christina Young

  • Professor of Conservation and Technical Art History (History of Art)

Research interests

My main research areas are on:

The history and significance of painted stage cloths (The Power To Transform)

Crack formation and fatigue in painted wooden cultural heritage (IMPASTOW) 

Photonic Imaging Strategies for Technical Art History and Conservation (PISTACHIO) 

 

I aim also leading a three year training and treatment project in the Structural Conservation of Paintings on Canvas (Getty Conserving Canvas), which combines technical art history, conservation and curatorial practice. 

More details of the research of the Technical Art Histroy Group can be found at https://technicalarthistory.gla.ac.uk/

 

My other long term research interests are: the conservation of modern and contemporary art, the development of non-invasive monitoring techniques, methods/materials for structural conservation, and history of painted canvas in fine and decorative art, theatre and performance, social, political and a religous context. 

At present I welcome PhD applications in the area of

1. Painted Stage Cloths and Theatrical Design:

Fees only Hunterian Scholarship available for research into the Tradition and Innovation in Scottish Scenic Art.

Fees only Textile Conservation Foundation Scholarship available for research into the Materials and Conservation of the Normansfield Theatre Scenery.

 

2. Mechanics of Painted Cultural Heritage

3. Conservation of Modern & Contemporary Art (including Gecko Inspired Dry Adhesives in Conservation).
