Gold and Blood

Scope of the Exhibition

The aim of the exhibition Gold and Blood is to explore the technical details of the panel painting “Scourging of the Four Crowned Martyrs” by Niccolo di Pietro Gerini at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This includes an exploration of the materials used (tempera, gold) and the techniques used in their application (gold tooling, color mixing techniques). This project hopes to place Niccolo di Pietro Gerini’s painting in the context of trecento Italian panel painting, especially considering that Gerini frequently worked in collaboration with other Florentine artists.
