Telops used the TESTD Active thermography system with a long wave and Mid wave IR camera for a non-destructive approach for characterization of multi-layered panel paintings and analysis of their defects caused by aging and environmental effects. Two oil compositions painted on canvas, provided by the Louvre Museum were inspected. Active Thermography was demonstrated as being appropriate for characterization of various defects on painting layers and detection of underdrawings, pentimenti and analysis of preparatory layers and canvas, thus providing valuable insights to heritage science and restoration community. This is a promising analytical method for paintings inspection and efficient methodology to obtain valuable information on historical paintings, their preparation and painting procedure, preservation conditions, and defect analysis. The obtained data can be stored as Artwork unique finger print, which can help the curator to follow, identify and document the artworks.

Join Dr. Stéphane Boubanga Tombet from Telops, our expert for a high-level discussion in this next webinar.
