Jacqueline Marette's Connaissance des primitifs par l'étude du bois du XIIe au XVIe siècle' (1961) is a unique resource on the history of painting techniques that combines scholarship in art history, conservation, and wood science. With support from the Getty Foundation's Panel Paintings Initiative, the Centre for Art Technological Studies and Conservation (CATS) based at the Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen, Denmark, released a new English translation of Marette's book as a free online publication, making this key reference tool accessible to a wider array of scholars. This expanded publication features critical readings of the original texts and updated references, as well as commentary from specialists with technical expertise and art-historical knowledge on northern European panel paintings from the 12th to the 16th centuries.
