Summary:
The Watermark Imaging Box (WImBo) Project is an inter-institutional collaboration to develop a low-cost, portable system for imaging watermarks and chain lines in papers, with a special focus on the prints of Rembrandt van Rijn (Dutch, 1606–1669) and his pupils. Representative of paper available in seventeenth-century Europe, Rembrandt's papers show a range of physical features that are typically documented  Read more...

Abstract:

The Watermark Imaging Box (WImBo) Project is an inter-institutional collaboration to develop a low-cost, portable system for imaging watermarks and chain lines in papers, with a special focus on the prints of Rembrandt van Rijn (Dutch, 1606–1669) and his pupils. Representative of paper available in seventeenth-century Europe, Rembrandt's papers show a range of physical features that are typically documented using a variety of imaging techniques. Building on this base, computational analysis of Rembrandt's papers has demonstrated great potential for enhancing existing scholarship by discovering affinities among prints across collections. However, a widely distributed imaging campaign poses challenges, some of which derive directly from the nature of Rembrandt's prints and papers, including passages of heavy ink application. To develop and refine new approaches for large-scale distributed imaging, WImBo teams were supplied with carefully selected and prepared test papers.
