I am examining a 13th-century drawing of 11th-century wall paintings that once decorated the Cathedral in Vercelli (Italy). I am conducting an analysis of the scenes depicting and comparing them to other works of art as well as creating a physical and a digital facsimile (copy) of the drawing. I would also like to create a virtual reconstruction of the painting in the Cathedral.
My research starts with a formal analysis of an art object, followed by placing the work of art in historical and historiographic contexts, and whenever possible I engage in archival work. My recent project requires multispectral photography and image processing, database building, and virtual reconstructions using Illustrator, Photoshop, etc.).
