Spectral imaging in Müstair

In the summer of 2018, the conservation of the wallpaintings in the middle apse in the monastery of St. John in Müstair began. In the upper area and in the dome, in consultation with the scientific director Patrick Cassitti, I examined preservation conditions and distribution of the paint layers.

Investigation in Freiburg Minster

In February and April I accompanied the studies and the conservation of the wallpainting of the Peter and Paul chapel in the cathedral of Freiburg im Breisgau. A partial area was recorded photographically in the stitching process, in high-resolution, from UV to infrared.

Piero della Francesca Conservation

At the end of March, the masterpiece Piero della Francesca The Resurrection was presented. At the end of the restoration, at the end of February, I documented the artwork for the last time in visible light and with specially selected wavelengths in the stitching process.
