Van Gogh works examined through scans
on Tuesday,December 14,2010 20:12
Vincent van Gogh's "The Ox Cart" has been on display at the Portland Art Museum since it was donated in 2007, but it had never caught the attention of Oregon Health and Science University researchers until recently. In an effort to understand the artist's work and technique, experts decided to use X-ray and CT scanners to discover new hints, according to The Oregonian.
The painting, which was created in 1884, is the most expensive gift the Portland Art Museum has received to date. Art historians heavily value the piece, claiming it shows van Gogh's progression as an artist, starting with his first years as a painter. Researchers were able to determine which canvas the painting was cut from, and hope to place more of van Gogh's paintings in chronological order through this method.
"It's a very fine weave - which is unusual for this period," restoration artist Nina Olsson told the news source. "The finely woven canvas would have been expensive for the then-struggling artist. I think it speaks to something of his ambition for this piece."
Employment of artists is predicted to increase by 12 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Technology may be able to help future generations understand how pieces of art were created.
