Cleveland Museum of Art
Caravaggio painted The Crucifixion of Saint Andrew (1606-7) on a canvas with a woven pattern
The painting is in the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art
The story started with the discovery of an application where Dean Yoder, Conservator of Painings explains the restauration of this painting. It shows an X-ray image with a pattern of the canvas.
A high quality X-ray images allowed me to decipher the pattern
