Abstract

original image

In-situ-Analyse: Nahinfrarot-Reflexionsspektroskopie (1000–2500 nm) wurde eingesetzt, um erstmals die Verwendung von fetthaltigen Bindemitteln, wahrscheinlich Eigelb, in einem Kunstwerk in situ zu kartieren. Die Identifizierung von Eitempera auf einer illuminierten Manuskriptseite (Betender Prophet von Lorenzo Monaco) wirft Licht auf die Beziehung zwischen Malern und Illuminatoren und kann wertvolle Informationen für Konservierungsmaßnahmen liefern.
