AbstractThe application of infrared spectroscopic imaging to non-destructive examination of works of art is described. Its advantages over infrared photography and reflectography are discussed, in particular its ability to provide spectroscopic information, which potentially allows identification of pigments, binders, and other materials. Near-infrared spectra of a selection of brown and black pigments are presented. Results are given of the application of infrared spectroscopic imaging to two works of art in different media: an ink drawing and an oil painting.
