From the Preface:
From 2004 to 2008, the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek and the Copenhagen Polychromy Network (CPN) carried out a Pilot Project in the museum’s collection of Greek and Roman sculpture. In June 2008 we started the so-called Main Project which will run until 2011. The first phase of visual examination began in January 2009 and lasted until this summer. Some provisional results of these activities are published in this first Preliminary Report. The Report also contains an introduction to the CPN and outlines of both the Pilot Project and the Main Project. The protocol followed in visual examination and documentation is not the subject of a separate article, but is presented instead as applied in practise. [...]
