Chantal CUYL "The ford, the door". 2005 Three-leaf... - Lot 217 - Artenchères
Chantal CUYL "The ford, the door". 2005 Three-leaf screen in wood and canvas, painted in tempera and decorated on the front with gold and silver leaves in burnished and matted tempera and on the back with gold in mixtion and pigments. 160 x 60 cm Chantal Cuyl, heritage restorer and gilder by trade, works in her workshop in the heart of old Lyon. Passionate about ancient techniques, she manages to blend tradition and modernity through her personal creations. The tempera technique has been used since the 14th century by primitive painters. The wooden support is primed with many layers of coating prepared with rabbit skin glue and Meudon white. The color of the plate that serves as a bed for the gold is chosen according to the desired reflection through the gold and silver leaves, which can be burnished or left matte. Consultant : Pierre-François Breuilh
