Articles are on painting of the Low Countries, Italy, France, Germany, Denmark... between medieval and modern times, not only easelpainting, but also bookillumination, painting on glas and ceramics and framing in the Southern Netherlands (15th until 17th c.). Some methodological issues are discussed. Molly Faries accepted to share her experience for an update on equipments for examination of paintings in the Infrared. The organizers had received for presentation in Bruges more interesting papers than they could accept; they include some of them in this publication.
