The Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage in Brussels (KIK-IRPA) and the Getty Foundation announced today the publication of Frames and Supports in 15th and 16th-century Southern Netherlandish Painting.

This free e-book, written by scholar Hélène Verougstraete, serves as an important resource for conservators and scholars who study and  care for old master paintings on wooden panel.

The publication is an updated study based on Verougstraete’s 1989 doctoral thesis, which was originally prepared in French with black and white pictures. The new e-book has been fully translated into English and features over 2,000 crisp, full-color illustrations and diagrams presented in a searchable, zoomable interface.
