The digital reconstruction of ‘The Crucifixion’ by the Master of the Lindau Lamentation

Online event: 8 July 2021

On Thursday 8 July from 17.00 -19.00 CET the symposium The digital reconstruction of ‘The Crucifixion’ of the Master of the Lamentation of Christ at Lindau (ca. 1425) will take place at Museum Catharijneconvent in Utrecht.

The symposium will address the imminent conservation of this painting. A central question that will be discussed is the value a 3D scan and a three-dimensional facsimile of the work to the restoration process. This 3D scan takes place on the same day and will be excuted by Carlos Bayod of The Factum Foundation, who is one of the speakers at the symposium. The symposium will be organized in a hybrid manner. A small group of experts is present in the museum and a larger audience can follow the symposium via a live stream.
