After some meetings in December 12, 2010, the AR Lab finally got the official request to contribute to the exposition of the Studio - Practice-Presentation in which the Van Gogh Museum will explain how Vincent Van Gogh dealt with re-using his paintings. This will be the third project with the Van Gogh Museum and students of the KABK and the AR-Lab.
Van Gogh used several ways for re-using his paintings:
scraping of the old painting, paint on top of the old painting with or without a special top layer made of zinc- white.
Several specialists of Shell and Instituut Collectie Nederland are working on this project. See the website of Van Gogh Museum on Research
