Ève’s research concentrates on the restoration of paintings mounted on rigid material, particularly the aging of various traditional and modern adhesives. This research would enable not only documenting the deterioration of these glues and the damage they do to painted works, but also potentially developing a stable, effective and reversible adhesive to meet the needs of restorers when treating mounted paintings.
