The examination that preceded the restoration revealed that the original painting was buried under a dozen layers of oxidised and shiny varnish. Using an XRF scanner, our researchers were able to identify the original paint and colour palette before starting the restoration work. The result? A reinvigorated version that brings us much closer to the painter's hand. Rubens appears more timeless than ever, to our great delight.
