An interview in the KU Leuven university journal Campuskrant with prof. Lieve Watteeuw the KU Leuven, contributions to the FINGERPRINT project have been highlighted in length. The Campus article focuses on the work with the original drawings by Pieter Bruegel the Elder and how the imaging effort by the FINGERPRINT-team have made the difference to better understand the virtuosity of Breugel the artist. These results will also be presented on the KBR exhibition: The World of Bruegel in Black and White.
The Imaging Lab was responsible for the digitisation of all drawings and prints and also carried out the advanced imaging enabling in-depth visualisations.
In a previous blogpost, we introduced the FINGERPRINT project. FINGERPRINT is an interdisciplinary collection and data management project on the exceptional collection of graphic works by Pieter Bruegel the Elder (ca. 1520-1569). It involves the collection and processing of a large amount of visual and material data. To obtain that visual data we have an extensive toolbox at our disposal: a high resolution medium format digital back, a motorized repro stand, a Nikon DSLR modified for multispectral imaging with a collection of multispectral filters, the RICH microdomes and much more. A brief overview. Continue reading →
