Painted Surfaces

Using technical examination methods such as infrared photography, ultraviolet light, x-ray imaging and microscopic analysis, Painted Surfacesgoes beyond the paint layers to reveal more about the techniques used by some of South Africa’s greatest painters. By providing insight into the physical process of creating an artwork, the exhibition throws new light on the painter’s intent, as well as aiding the care and conservation treatment of the artworks. This exhibition is a must-see for scholars, art students and experts wanting to know what lies beyond the surface of paintings.
