Project funding

The contents of this page were created in pure leisure activity without scholarships or other donations. Due to the tight budgets of many institutions, some projects had to be deferred because X-rays or color analyzes were required to continue the studies and had to be financed from own resources. If you want to make a contribution to the research of the presented cultural heritage, even smaller contributions are very helpful. It is also useful if you recommend this page to those who are interested.

Thank you very much for your support!

The following project on the list of priorities is presented in the presentation XIX: "Adventure Research - Insight into current Work". Likewise, it appears in video IV: "From Cantastoria to the sound film". In the opinion of the author, the intervention of the painting goes back to Queen Christine of Sweden, who had a harpsichord from the Prague art robbery painted over. Consequently, a painting could be expected in the lower layer of paint, which could still be viewed until 1650 and was highly prized at the imperial court. If this working hypothesis could be verified by an X-ray examination, the history of this instrument could be almost completely reconstructed and, incidentally, it would appear that Allessandro Scarlatti most probably played on it.
