Two papers were given under the title Recognized by their color. Modern Age pigments and dyes’ response in multi-band analysis: a visual tool for art historians and conservators and Light through color: Behavior of some historical pigments in canvases using transmitted light techniques in the visible and infrared ranges of the spectrum (TL and IRT).
During the second day of the seminar the team of the CAEM (Center d’Art d’Època Moderna) of the University of Lleida, in particular Miquel Herrero (researcher of the Department of Art History and Social History of the University of Lleida and CAEM) , Marta Raïch (image technician) Andrea La Bella (researcher) and Anna Pedret (researcher) together with the collaboration of Dr. Paola Artoni, head of the LANIAC Center (Laboratory of Analisi Diagnostic non Invasive per l’Arte antica, Moderna e Contemporanea) from the Università degli studi di Verona (Italy) have presented two investigations focused on the use of multiband techniques for the study of pigments and works of art, presenting all the positive aspects and the limits of these techniques applied to the pictorial heritage.
In addition, the researcher Miquel Herrero has collaborated in a Workshop entitled “L’Archeometria per il colore nel restauro pittorico” at the Istituto di Restauro Marche (IRM) Montecassiano (Italy).
In the presentations a more theoretical first part has been exposed, explaining the results obtained with patterns made in the CAEM laboratory, compared later with the results obtained in pieces studied in the same center.
Our specialists have been able to exchange opinions on the behavior of pigments in the various regions of the spectrum.
