CAMEO: Conservation & Art Materials Encyclopedia Online
CAMEO is a searchable information center developed by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. It has recently undergone a major transformation to a wiki based platform. As is inherent in wikis, some databases and pages contained within CAMEO are 'works in progress'. Pages, data, and information will be added and updated on a continuing basis.
The MATERIALS database contains chemical, physical, visual, and analytical information on over 10,000 historic and contemporary materials used in the production and conservation of artistic, architectural, archaeological, and anthropological materials.
To search both English and non-English (French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, German, Dutch, Greek, Polish, Hungarian, etc.) terms in the MATERIALS database, enter the full or partial term in the box above.
