The aims of this project were to demonstrate the most interesting aspects of the creative process behind this painting, shed light on how it was conceived and in this way gain an insight into how the artist worked.

The analysis consisted in applying the different study methods commonly used in museum laboratories: X-ray, infrared reflectography, analysis of the materials used by the author, and a detailed photography 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 variations and rectifications which the Málaga-born master included in his creative process.

The results have been displayed in the Room 45 (Ground Floor) from 28th April to 11th September 2017, on occassion of the 25th anniversary of the museum.
