Cartoon Transfer Video

Infrared reflectography (IRR) makes visible underdrawings or changes in paint layers that are not apparent to the naked eye. This video, produced by the J. Paul Getty Museum in conjunction with Andrea del Sarto: The Renaissance Workshop in Action, demonstrates one technique, used by Renaissance artists, to transfer a drawing from a cartoon to a painting support.

We are grateful to the Getty for making this video available.
