From the series Les Primitifs Flamands. I. Corpus de la peinture des anciens Pays-Bas méridionaux au quinzième siècle. This volume is entirely dedicated to the polyptych of The Last Judgment by Roger van der Weyden. 15 x-rays, 20 infra-red photographs and 43 macrophotographs 2X were taken in view of the importance of the object. The 19th century restoration could be studied using photographic and laboratory methods confirmed by archival sources. The problems of attribution, collaboration of different artists, and composition changes are also discussed (from bcin.ca).
