Thread-Counting Workshop Overview
Investigating art images with digital technologies
An interdisciplinary team will present a half day Tutorial Workshop on the automated study of canvas weave from x-rays on Monday, September 21, 2009 at the Courtauld Institute of Art. Workshop participants will receive user training for newly developed software tools that produce and archive accurate local (or spot) thread counts for paintings on plain-weave canvas from x-ray images. We will demonstrate tool use and provide the software that creates weave maps that provide overall mappings of canvas weave density variations across a painting support, illustrating their use on case studies of van Gogh's paintings.
Roses, Vincent van Gogh
