Mapping of art works

This section contains some of our graphic work on the mapping of art works. Increasingly, restorers wish to document their data and work in graphic form during research and restoration projects: they need to represent their work in a clear and scholarly manner, often with a view to publication.
Researchers, scholars and restorers analyse the surface of paintings and sculptures to understand the techniques used to make them, to map damage or alterations and to show past interventions and their own. In this section you can see some work carried out for this purpose, as presented in our drawings.
