From the ateliers of great masters to the labs of the Rijksmuseum

As watching actual paint dry is not the most exciting activity for a scientist, we took the safest and the fastest method: computer modeling of chemical processes happening in paint. The method does not damage any paintings, and good models can predict years of paint drying in an hour or two.
