Noli me tangere

17th century banner

These are photographs of diagnostic investigation for an ancient banner being currently restored at the restoration laboratories of Urbino. On this banner attributed to Giovanni Battista Urbinelli and painted during the mid-seventeenth century, two scenes are painted: on the back you can see the “Noli Me Tangere”, while on the front you can see “Saints Stephen and John the Baptist” (148x99cm). The used photographic techniques are various, including UV and IR. At this link you can download the full pdf of the survey carried out for the “Photography  for the BBCC” course in ISIA of Urbino.
