The portrait had been sketched out using a wash of dark paint, clearly imaged in the infrared. The x-radiograph reveals that the canvas had also been used for a landscape that is of a different scale from both the portrait and the current image. Tintoretto’s painting techniques have been well studied [14, 15]. An investigation into the materials used for the Gonzaga cycle (1577-1578) showed that the artist employed a diverse palette [16]. Here we restrict the discussion to two pigments found in Christ at the Sea of Galilee that have special relevance to the use of glassy materials for pigments.
