Maestro de Perea's altarpiece
In collaboration with Fundación Casa Ducal de Medinaceli
In 2019, Factum Foundation collaborated with Fundación Casa Ducal de Medinaceli on a new digital preservation project involving the surface and colour recording of a late-15th-century altarpiece known as the Retablo del Maestro de Perea. The recording allowed the creation of a database documenting the current state of conservation of the altarpiece, whose 14 panels had recently been restored by the Fundación, permitting close study, wider dissemination, and possible reproduction as a conservation facsimile.
The recording of the 14 panels was carried out over a period of two and a half weeks at Casa de Pilatos in Seville. The Lucida 3D Scanner, which was designed and built by Manuel Franquelo in collaboration with Factum Foundation, was used to record the surface relief of the painted wooden panels, and panoramic photography was used to record colour.
The project followed previous collaborations with the Fundación Medinaceli, for whom Factum Foundation has also recorded the Sepulchre of Cardinal Tavera and architectural elements in Casa de Pilatos.
