To See the Invisible... for the 50th Anniversary of the Department of Technological Research
14 april—13 june 2022
Since the beginning of the 1970s, a special Department has been operating in the
Russian Museum, where non-destructive research methods are used in the study
of works of art. In the Technological Research Department, you can read the
author's signatures hidden under the layers of paint, see the underlying image or
preparatory drawing, and also clarify the technique in which a particular work of
art was created. Thanks to joint work with colleagues from the scientific
departments of the museum, real discoveries were made: the names of the
authors of many paintings were revealed and certain works became more
accurately dated. Also in this department there is a unique archive of radiographs,
which is constantly updated.
The title of the exhibition dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the Department of
Technological Research reflects the essence of its work: to study what, how, when
and by whom certain works were created. The exposition gives an idea of ​​what
results such research methods as microscopy, radiography, study in the infrared
and ultraviolet regions of the spectrum, X-ray fluorescence analysis can bring.
The exhibition will be held in the Garden Vestibule (Hall 29) of the Mikhailovsky
Palace.
