Development and application of new, non-destructive methods of analysis for research of works of art.

How can we examine works of art without damaging them? That is the key question being investigated by Joris Dik (born in 1974), whose research straddles the dividing line between science and the humanities. For example, Dik has developed methods to make a painting’s underlying layers visible. His approach may shed new light on the oeuvre of such masters as Rembrandt and Van Gogh, both of whom consistently reused their canvases. Dik has published in journals in both the sciences and the humanities and in magazines targeting the museum sector and museum professionals. His research has featured regularly on Dutch television.
