Hello everybody! I have found some interesting fact about secrets, hidden in art works. And here is one of them:
Leonardo da Vinci’s painting, The Lady with an Ermine, was reworked twice before its final composition. According to BBC News, French engineer Pascal Cotte discovered that da Vinci changed the position of the lady’s forearm and only added her symbolic ermine to the third version of his work. Using the Layer Amplification Method (LAM), a technique he and his team invented, Cotte projected intense light onto the painting and measured its reflections with a multi-lens camera. “The LAM technique gives us the capability to peel the painting like an onion, removing the surface to see what’s happening inside and behind the different layers of paint,” explained Cotte to the BBC. The result? Turns out, da Vinci occasionally required a do-over. Or two.
If you know some interesting fact or secrets connected to art, please, share with me on my http://labreportwriter.com/ website. I'm going to write some interesting article on this topic. Thanks!
