THE IMPACT of OIL. Historical painting techniques in early Netherlandish Painting
23 AUGUST TO 1 SEPTEMBER 2011

The mornings will be devoted to presentations by members of the research project The Impact of Oil: A history of oil painting in the Low Countries and its consequences for the visual arts, 1350-1550 and a few excursions to relevant museum collections. The lectures will focus on the workshop practices in early Netherlandish painting and the technical aspects of the use of oil as a binding medium and its potential to create illusionistic effects. In the afternoons, a practical workshop will be given based on the study of original paintings from the Rijksmuseum collection, which will be on hand in the studio.

The participants will prepare pigments, grind them with different types of oils, and use these paints to create a reconstruction of an area from one of the paintings. They will also be given the opportunity to try out gilding and applied brocade techniques (so-called "press brocade"). Special emphasis will be placed on the various techniques used to depict specific fabrics: gold-brocaded velvets, shot silks, and translucent textiles. Oil paint lends itself well to producing different kinds of textural effects because of its relatively slow drying, blending ability and translucency. A number of the sessions will occur jointly with the Made in the Netherlands course.
