Language: Original   -   Translation
Abstract: In this Bachelor thesis five paintings of Andrea del Verrocchio and Leonardo da Vinci are examined on correlations between painting technique and craquelure.
The general painting techniques of the artists as well as the classification and formation of crack phenomena is described. X-ray images of the paintings are present, on which 20 sections in the areas of flesh, sky and fabric are selected and compared with one another.
Finally considerations on the causality of the detected correlations are taken.
