Sherlock Holmes has got nothing on these guys, learn the tricks of this trade from the best in the business. The investigative work carried out by Heritage Malta’s Diagnostic Science Laboratories on paintings from the MUŻA collection is truly inspiring.
Science isn’t only about what scientists do in the lab to find a cure for disease. It is useful in so many ways. Heritage Malta uses science to unearth the secrets kept hidden by time itself under layers and layers of paint, stone and soil. Our cultural heritage is fraught with info about us and our history. Using the latest technology we can now pinpoint when an art piece was created. Heritage Malta have even found hidden images behind the paint of other works. So visit MUŻA and become an Art Detective, look for forgeries and help conservators and historians understand how the art came to be. Live non-invasive painting analysis will carried out as well as, x-radiography demos to uncover underlying hidden images and photography. Your hands will have to get dirty for parts of this event.
