Since 2009, the University of Delaware has been awarded a
series of grants from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation to support the
design and creation of digital and physical historically accurate
reconstructions of selected paintings from the Kress Collection. Use of
these didactics and associated lesson plans, as well as sample sets of
historic pigments and their raw materials available upon request from
the Kress Foundation, will inform and inspire scholars, students, and
the general public about the making of art and the value of technical
art history. The intent of the website is to make principles and
terminology of technical art history clear and accessible to the
nonspecialist and to strengthen the appreciation, interpretation, and
preservation of Old Master paintings.
Brian Baade, project
coordinator and UD assistant professor of art conservation, and UD
doctoral candidate and paintings conservator Kristin deGhetaldi have
led this project with impressive expertise and commitment. We are
grateful to the many UD undergraduate and graduate students who assisted
with website development and design and to the Samuel H. Kress
Foundation for their sustained support of this initiative.
