More than Meets the Eye: New Research on the Estorick Collection
23 September – 20 December 2015
This fascinating exhibition presents the findings of a scientific analysis of works belonging to the Estorick Collection. Alongside new archival research, data obtained from a range of imaging processes will reveal exciting information about the material nature of the works and their histories, opening up new perspectives on the Collection’s masterpieces.
The analysis has been conducted by the University of Pisa, the Opificio delle Pietre Dure in Florence and the Consiglio Nazione delle Ricerche of Florence and Milan, as part of the project FUTURAHMA – From Futurism to Classicism (1910-1922): Painting Techniques, Art History and Material Analysis, funded by the Italian Ministry for Universities and Research.
