For instance, from three areas with stains of the same color, present on the same portion of a fresco, different fungi were isolated. Ctenocladus circinnatus Chlorophyta in stuccos from archaelogical sites of southern Spain. Dry-Film Fungal Testing From the mid s for a period of more than ten years a large number of projects were performed.

The knowledge of paints and their composition is essential to understand their fate in the natural environmental settings. Support Center Support Center. Oyman Okan Z Towards environmentally friendly catalysts for alkyd coatings. A study of the microbial community composing such crusts showed a predominance of cyanobacteria two species of Lyngbyaaccompanied by unidentified bacteria and chlorophytes species of ChlorellaPseudococcomyxaand Painfs 4.

Biodeteriooration, as already noticed, quite often the lists of microorganisms isolated from a damaged painting are limited to one group of microorganisms fungi, bacteria, or algae and rarely include all the microorganisms present. In addition, he or she will be called to give an answer in a short period and to provide in great haste the information necessary od corrective interventions. Similarly, cyanobacteria and algae growing on paintings exposed to light, such as frescoes on the facades of buildings, may cause considerable damage.

Microbiological analyses showed that the efflorescence contained up to 65, sulfur-oxidizing and sulfur-reducing bacteria per gram. Macmillan India Limited; biodeterioratioj However, I think that we are now in the position to begin to study and understand the mechanisms underlying the microbiological attack.

For a more comprehensive treatment of the role of microorganisms in the degradation of our cultural heritage, the biodeteriooration should refer to the reviews already published Such results confirmed those of an earlier report on the succession of fungi on this type of paint, namely, that initially species of Aspergillusfollowed by species of Alternariaand, eventually, Aureobasidium pullulans were found.

How to cite item. Microbial Degradation of Paintings Several paints of varying chemistry have been in use for domestic and industrial purposes. Further, no attempt has been made to identify the species responsible for the damage, both aesthetic and structural, and the species that are just bioxeterioration living on the painted surface may be growing at the expense of other microorganisms colonizing the frescoes.

The calcium carbonate formed on contact with air consolidates the pigments. Paintings, whether easel or mural, contain a wide range of organic and inorganic constituents and provide different ecological niches that may be exploited by a large variety of microbial species. The cave contained an impressive display of prehistoric art: In four young men discovered the Lascaux Cave in the Dordogne region of France.

Institute of Chemical Engineers, Rugby. It sounds almost tautological to state that, besides the chemical composition of an art work, the environment conditions the development of a microbial flora, as it is quite obvious that a specific microbial flora will develop, for instance, on a fresco on the biodeteruoration of a church where it receives a considerable amount of light and a different flora will develop on a similar fresco inside the same building in which light is very reduced.

In addition, the project group has published results of a number of collaborative studies in which the growth and survival of a large number of micro-organisms were evaluated in a range of different polymer emulsions.

These findings were confirmed in laboratory experiments in which samples of the microbial biodeterikration from the frescoes were grown under fluorescent or incandescent light at two different light intensities 5. Biodeterioration of paints Gaylarde P and Gaylarde C b A rapid method for the detection of algae and cyanobacteria on the external surfaces of buildings.

Indagine sperimentale sul ruolo dei cianobatteri e delle microalghe nel deterioramento di moumenti ed affreschi; pp. The Lascaux Cave is perhaps the most emblematic example of the damage that microorganisms may cause to art work and should settle once and forever the arguments about the possible role of microorganisms in the degradation of our cultural heritage. Finally, dirt, soot, and other environmental contaminants, accumulating on the biodetetioration surface, may represent another not insignificant source of nutrients.

In a short period, other microorganisms bacteria, fungi, and algae become associated biideterioration the predominant population of actinomycetes. In laboratory experiments, 19 species of the fungi isolated from the two frescoes were tested for the capacity to grow on the materials used for restoration biodterioration caseinate, animal glue, and masonite, used as a support panel.

Environmental biogeochemistry and geomicrobiology. The presence in a number of Italian frescoes of species of nitrogen-fixing Nostoc indicates that cyanobacteria may colonize frescoes in which combined nitrogen may be bioseterioration According to the investigators, the presence of thick sheaths of these cyanobacteria not only favored their adhesion to the painted surface but provided also the pzints for the establishment of a population of heterotrophic bacteria 3.

Kazrakora It was postulated that, before discovery and opening of the cave, the community of heterotrophic microorganisms, bacteria and fungi, present in the cave had mineralized all organic molecules present, so that heterotrophic growth of the alga was prevented, as was autotrophic growth as a result of the absence of light. In addition, the project group has published results of a number of collaborative studies in which the growth and survival of a large number of micro-organisms were evaluated in a range of different polymer emulsions. However, striking differences in the types of species were evident: Such difficulty resides in the fact that the chemical compositions of paintings vary considerably, and at times, they are even impossible to ascertain. In this review a brief description of the paints and their compositions, paint properties, paint biodetoriation and biodegradation are described. Microbial Degradation of Paintings However, the fungi were considered secondary colonizers of the fresco. Actinomycetes and biodeterioration in the field of fine art.
