Abstract

The original polychromy of the main altarpiece of the Coimbra Old Cathedral, produced by the painter Jean d’Ypres in 1501-1502, has partially survived hidden under three subsequent interventions. Analyses performed by Scanning Electron Microscopy with Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy, micro X-ray Diffraction, micro-chemical tests and micro-Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy enabled to demonstrate how particularly suitable were the materials employed and their implementation for the final effects to be achieved. This case-study, which involved the activity of Flemish artists in Portugal, allowed for a comparison to be drawn with altarpieces produced in Brabant at the same period.
