Sylvie Neven earned her PhD in History, Art and Archaeology at the University of Liège. She is currently researcher in the framework of a First Spin-Off at the ULg, Service d’histoire et technologie des arts plastiques -Temps modernes. She is also lecturer at the same University. Her work combines historical, philological, experimental and archaeometrical approaches to focus on written sources in art technology. She proposes to use these sources to study the practices and the materials of artists from Antiquity across Europe. She dedicated her doctoral thesis, Les recettes artistiques du Manuscrit de Strasbourg et leur tradition dans les réceptaires allemands des XVe et XVIe siècles (édition, traduction et commentaires technologiques), to one of the most relevant examples of this technical literature, the Strasbourg Manuscript. This work has recently been published by Archetype Publications (London) ‘The Strasbourg Manuscript. A Medieval Tradition of Artists’ Recipe Collections (1400-1570)’. Since January 2016 she coordinates the project ‘APPROACH’ (Authentication, Preservation and Production of Artistic Material for Cultural Heritage) which offers services in documentation and expertise for authentication and preservation of works of art.
