Chemistry and Art: Bacchus and Ariadne

Description

It was not uncommon for canvas paintings to be rolled up for ease of transport. However, this painting seems to have been rolled the wrong way - with the paint on the inside. This led to problems of flaking. Its restoration gave opportunities to study Titian's methods and materials.
