|...great to see that our research and recreation has inspired scientists for the INTERSECTIONS Conference in London by Loughborough University Textile Design Research Group.|
See the whole, very interesting article in http://www.lboro.ac.uk/…/d…/Litherland_INTERSECTIONS2017.pdf
Weaver Helena Loermans and painter, art historian Marta Pokojowczyk have recreated the XVI century linen canvas on which El Greco painted 'The Burial of the Count of Orgaz'
‘Handwoven Canvas by Loermans & Pokojowczyk’ is a project set up by these two people, who are passionate about the use of linen yarns in the production of canvases. It has developed since 2014 when Marta attended Helena’s Handwoven Textiles Atelier in Portugal under the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs Programme.
The recreation of the historical linen canvases follows in the footsteps of the old masters and weavers, connecting craft, art, history and science.
In Helena's atelier in Odemira you will find the Laboratory for Handwoven Canvas where she recently recreated the XVII century linen canvas on which Diego Velazquez painted 'Saint John in the Wilderness'.
...handwoven recreation in the original density of the canvas on which Diego Velazquez painted in the XVII century....
...happy to share the news of being welcome in the restoration department of the National Gallery in London to study x ray images from the canvas that Titian used for the Vendramin Family.
Great to attempt to reconstruct also that canvas in the Laboratory for Handwoven Canvas in Odemira.
Fantastico desafio para o Laboratório de Telas Manuais em Odemira.
