Technical Art History: Technical campaign of a single artwork - Master's Course I

The degree project is an independent project where the students, under the lecturer’s supervision, will conduct a technical examination of a single artwork from the University’s art collection or similar. The language of instruction is English.

The students will consider what scientific methods are necessary for the analysis, process and interpret the technical results of the examinations, as well as perform an art history analysis based on the latter. In addition, the students will carry out a historical reconstruction of the art object’s provenance and collection affiliation and, if possible, process historical documentation relating to the artwork. Finally, the students will compile their results in a mandatory written assignment and discuss the results at a seminar.
