Catherine R. Matsen


University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA

M.S. in Historic Preservation, August 2003

Thesis: The Corbit-Sharp House at Odessa, Delaware: Paint Analysis and Interpretation of Four Interior Rooms

This research addresses the examination and analysis of original interior finishes of four rooms of the Corbit-Sharp House (1774) using cross-section microscopy, PLM, FTIR, GS-MS and SEM-EDS and color matching with a colorimeter. The combined results of these analytical methods form an almost complete picture of the original appearances of the four rooms and the materials used to create the painted decorations. Identification of original finishes is one critical factor in establishing the hierarchies of interior space, and, in the case of William Corbit (1746-1818), revealed the deliberate choice of an expensive finish in an otherwise secondary space.
