Art historic research
Focused art historic research was necessary to guarantee the quality of the restoration and preservation of the Coats of Arms.Titles and arms as borne by all the relevant knights and sovereigns in 1456 were traced.Also other preserved Coats of Arms of these knights or their direct relatives were traced and good reproductions thereof were made available to the restorers of SRAL.This comparative material made it possible to read and assess what was found on the panels in The Hague more correctly and prudently. The art historic research was carried out by the art historian Drs. Marjolijn Kruip, under the substantive supervision of Prof. Dr. A.M. Koldeweij, Medieval Art History, Radboud University Nijmegen.The texts on this website are based on that research. The research was supported by: – the Pronk Visser Fonds, Wim en Nini H. Fonds, Keg Thate Fonds, Eelco Brinkman Fonds en het Wijnand Goppel Fonds, J.E. Jurriaanse Stichting, M.A.O.C. Gravin van Bylandt Stichting, Stichting Fonds A.H. Martens van Sevenhoven, managed by the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds.
