Layer by Layer

By: Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen

A medieval artist built up his panel painting in various layers. This video shows the process step by step. Starting point is a detail from the Norfolk Triptych (1414-1420) from the collection of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, which is on show in the exhibition The road to Van Eyck (October 13, 2012 till February 10, 2013). By combining research into the paint layers with material-technical data such as x-ray and infrared photography, we have been able to make an accurate reconstruction of this detail.

The reconstruction was made by art historian and painting restorer Charlotte Caspers.
