FE3D – Picasso

Fernande MET-NewYork

Fernande 3D: 2013 – 2016. The work was developed with the 3DOM Unit, Bruno Kessler Foundation, and the University of Trento, Italia. Aim of this project is to provide support with the most advanced and modern surveying and modelling techniques for a comparative and systematic study of different models of “Fernande”. Laser scanning and photogrammetric surveys are carried out in important museums all around the world (Tate Modern in London, MoMa and Metropolitan Museum in New York, National Gallery of Art and Hirshhorn Museum in Washintion D.C., Museum Berggruen in Berlin). In-depth analyses and inspections of the derived digital 3D models are performed to highlight peculiarities and distinctive elements of the different casting techniques. The project is co-funded by Fondazione CARITRO (Cassa di Risparmio di Trento e Rovereto).
