The four paintings examined are alike yet different variations on a theme – Christ Driving the Traders from the Temple and were made with different purposes, answering to the demands of a booming 16th-century Antwerp art market. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/four-paintings-magnified/ Sun, 22 Apr 2012 22:00:00 +0000 Anne Haack Christensen, Dr. Jørgen Wadum https://www.leica-microsystems.com/4334 Conservation Digital Microscopy Ancient Feast of Color Everyone knows that antique marble sculptures were white. Or were they? Scientists of the Copenhagen Polychromy Network (CPN) help to show that the statues of the Greeks and Romans were decorated with extravagant ornaments and sumptuous colours. With the help of a surgical microscope and digital microscopy, the conservators detect tiny traces of paint pigment that suggest a veritable feast of colour in ancient times. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/ancient-feast-of-color/ Mon, 14 Dec 2009 23:00:00 +0000 Jan Stubbe Ostergaard, Kerstin Pingel https://www.leica-microsystems.com/4330 Conservation Restoration in an Open Workshop For more than a year from August 2007 through October 2008 museum visitors of the Statens Museum for Kunst, the Danish National Gallery in Copenhagen, were able to experience an open conservation studio in the exhibition area. The reason for bringing the conservators and all their equipment into the exhibition rooms of the museum was the conservation, restoration and technical research of Jacob Jordaens’ (1593 – 1678) early masterpiece “The Tribute Money. Peter Finding the Silver Coin in the Mouth of the Fish”, also known as “The Ferry Boat to Antwerp”. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/restoration-in-an-open-workshop/ Mon, 14 Dec 2009 23:00:00 +0000 Anne Haack Christensen, Troels Filtenborg, Dr. Jørgen Wadum
