The project’s objectives were to reveal the most interesting aspects of the creative process behind the work, to unravel the mystery of how it was conceived and, lastly, to gain a deeper insight into how the artist worked.

The analysis consisted in applying the different methods commonly used in museum laboratories: X-ray, infrared reflectography, analysis of the materials used by the painter, and detailed photographic documentation. Using this methodology, we set out to determine the technique employed, the composition of the materials, their distribution in the different layers, and the alterations and rectifications that Caravaggio made during the creative process
