reconstruction of the canvas Titian used for 'The Vendramin Family'

...grateful that I managed to weave a reconstruction of the canvas from a third master painting:  Titian 'The Vendramin Family' , painting in The National Gallery in London. It is the oldest painting that I have studied until now... 1540-5 I will soon go to London and show a sample.
Details as density of warp and weft threads are published in a Technical Bulletin , available on The National Gallery 's website...

...this is the canvas where Titian looked at when starting his paining, it is a very delicate texture...

...high resolution image on the website of the National Gallery London

...a very first sketch from the pattern...


...with the use of a weaving software and the first book about weaving, Ziegler Weber Kunst und Bild Buch, I could make the weaving draft...
