Factum Foundation is delighted to announce a new collaboration with the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum in Spain, focused on the preservation, study, and dissemination of the museum's collection through recording technologies.
The first step of this collaboration will be the high-resolution recording in 3D and colour of Vittore Carpaccio's Young Knight in a Landscape (1510), one of the most celebrated works in the collection. As part of Factum Foundation's core principles, the museum will own the copyright on the data for all current and future applications.
The recording of Young Knight in a Landscape will take place at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in late March, in the same room where the painting is being cleaned and restored in full view of visitors, a great occasion to show the complex processes involved in the conservation of artworks. Visitors will be able to watch the entire recording process.
