Reconstruction detail of Crucifixion (first half 15th century) by (school of) Jan van Eyck, preparation for reconstruction project with Arie Wallert, 2013

This Medieval drawing has been made with gold and silverpoint on paper. The paper has discolored over time due to saturation (oil, varnish) and therefore it has become difficult to distinguish the delicate lines typical for metal point drawing. The reconstruction gives an impression of the original appearance before the paper darkened.
