Research activities

This page presents a number of highlights from the research conducted within the frame of this chair. The topics concern both instrumental development of imaging setups and applied research on specific works of art. The latter is mainly performed as a service to museums. This type of analysis is usually carried out to support an ongoing conservation treatment with insights into the artist's materials, techniques and degradation mechanisms. Nevertheless, for several Masters such Van Eyck, Van Gogh or Rubens the aim is to obtain a significant corpus of data that allows characterising the studio practice of these artists.
