Hidden from the Eyes: Underdrawings in panel paintings from the 14th–16th centuries

A great exhibition that lets you see behind masterpieces of the Middle Ages and see hidden images and designs known as “underdrawings”—literally, hidden details, images and words concealed within large paintings.

Visitors will also be able to learn about the painting and sculpting techniques of the time, and see the technologies being used today to understand those works.
