V. Schaible, 'Der W eg der Doubliertechniken. Versuch einer Zwischenbilanz', Maltechnik fRestauro 89 ( 1983), pp. 250- 256. 15 Edges of canvas that are pulled around stretcher-bars tend to weaken and eventually tear along the edge of the stretcher. Usually the ground and paint have flaked off at these places. As the removal of rusted nails was time-consuming and damage to the canvas could hardly be avoided, restorers used to cut the canvas along outer edges of the strainer or stretcher and then line it, using the edges of the slightly larger lining canvas to restretch the painting.

Mrs K. Levy, who initially assisted as a graduate student in collecting written sour~es for the preparation Oflhis cpapter, found much interesting information on canvas used or usable by painters, which she intends to publish in a separate article on the subject. 39 In, for instance, the technical instruction sheet on the stretching of canvas· issued by the Royal Academy for Visual Arts in Amsterdam, it is advised alwa ys to have the warp direction parallel to the longest side of the stretcher.

One does however come across quite small groups of canvases coming from the same bolt. Within the period 1631-1642 one finds pairs of canvases a few times, and once a group of three and one of four; to the group of four may be added two small fragments incorporated in other paintings to which we shall come back later (see table B). Such groups of canvases cannot be identified on the ground of matching threadcounts alone - there have to be sufficient similarities in other properties of the fabric as well.
