Craquelure development in panel paintings

We are delighted to share with you the latest publication about the development of craquelure patterns in panel paintings that is now available in the Heritage Science journal!
Our colleagues built a 3D model of panel painting with a cracked pictorial layer of gesso and oil paint or tempera paint to investigate how the presence of craquelure pattern and sub-surface defects in gesso affect the surface stresses in paintings.
Congratulations to our colleagues!
This research was carried out within the GRIEG-Craquelure project (2019/34/H/HS2/00581), which has received funding from the Norway Grants 2014-2021 in cooperation with NCN National Science Centre Poland.
