Underneath the brushstrokes of Italian and Spanish Old Masters’ paintings are intricate linen textiles, woven on handlooms in the 16th and 17th centuries.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art stores a collection of similarly patterned linen fragments from the 15th to 19th centuries.
The webinar will guide you through the story from the analyses of x-ray images and photomicrographs, to the recovery of weave drafts and reconstructions, which has become a tool for further study in technical art history.
Join Textile Conservator, Cristina Balloffet Carr, in her discussion with Helena Loermans on this fascinating topic, Thursday, November 10th, 10 – 10:45 am EST.
