Preparatory drawing for the painting all night long, from RembrandtIt was discovered during the restoration of the works that lasted for more than two years, announced Wednesday Rijksmuseumfrom Amsterdam.
The design discovery represents an advance in this investigation. We always suspected Rembrandt should have painted it on canvas before embarking on this incredibly complex composition, but we didn’t have the proof. Taco Dibbits, quoting Rijksmuseum director, Taco Dibbits, citing Rijksmuseum director, Taco Dibbits said: In a statement. The head of the Dutch National Museum concluded: “We discovered the origin of a all night long“.
According to the museum, this discovery was possible only thanks to new technologies that make it possible to observe through layers of paint “and analyze in detail the materials used by Rembrandt”, having discovered the use of a painter that had never before been used in any other installations.
“Every new detail gives us another perspective on the creative process of Rembrandt. Your original idea, thought processes, and artistic choices. A cross-sectional approach like this would have been impossible a few years ago, said the museum’s head of conservation, Petria Noble, which means that an “all-night process” is creating a new standard for the study of painting. For this specialist, what is revealed allows a fresh look at Other works of Rembrandt, because now you “know what to look for”.
Launched in July 2019, the painting’s restoration and research project is the largest and most ambitious ever at the Rijksmuseum. The canvas, showing the guard of Amsterdam under Captain Frans Banning Kock, fits into the Dutch tradition of group portraits that emerged in the so-called golden age of Dutch art.
As part of the project, the Rijksmuseum created a large glass box around the painting to be restored to the public, broadcasting the process in flow.
