MULTISPECTRAL IMAGING
DIAGNOSTICS

  • Multispectral imaging. Complete scans of the artwork in MACRO quality with micrometric precision.
  • Perfectly matching and therefore easily comparable images.
  • Tools made and designed specifically for and by DRiART.
  • True virtual stratigraphy of a work of art.

– High Resolution Visible Light photography
– Multispectral UV fluorescence
– Multispectral UV reflection
– False Colour UV
– Multispectral NIR Photography
– False Colour Infrared
– Multispectral Infrared Reflectography SWIR with InGaAs

DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING

DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING provides information on the technique used, the state of preservation, and historical events of a work of art, by converting the interaction of materials in a cultural asset with different electromagnetic waves, not always visible to the naked eye, into digital images.

Confronto

Micro e Macro fotografia

MICRO AND MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY

This allows a thorough study of the surface of the artwork, obtaining particularly sharp and clear images of micro and macro details of interest.

RAKING LIGHT

This highlights the three-dimensional aspect of the surface’s appearance, which provides information on the technique used to create the artwork, and on the state of its preservation.

MULTISPECTRAL UV FLUORESCENCE

This allows us to study the external layers on an artwork, and in particular any protective layers. The method sometimes allows the recognition of the pigments used, but above all, it guarantees a complete mapping of the restoration interventions that the artefact has undergone over the years.

MULTISPECTRAL UV REFLECTION

This lets us differentiate between some pictorial materials and previous restoration interventions. It is also an addition to the method of UV Fluorescence in the study of the pictorial technique.

FALSE COLOUR UV

This allows the diversification, localisation and, above all, identification of the materials used in a pictorial work. It is complementary to false colour IR.

MULTISPECTRAL NIR PHOTOGRAPHY

This allows us to study the layers, hidden immediately below the superficial pictorial film, revealing changes to the artwork, and sometimes also the initial sketch.

FALSE COLOUR INFRARED

This allows diversification, localisation and, above all, identification of the materials used in a pictorial work. It is complementary to false colour UV.

MULTISPECTRAL IR REFLECTOGRAPHY SWIR WITH InGaAs

This lets us study the deeper layers underneath a pictorial film, in particular the sketch made during the creation of the artwork. It also allows us to study some of the changes the artist made during the creative process, and in some cases even previously overpainted compositions.

Micro fotografia 3d della superficie

 MICRO 3D SURFACE PHOTOGRAPHY

This allows us to study the surface of a work of art in microscopic detail and recreate a navigable 3D model. It is fundamental for the study of the technique applied by the artist in order to create an artefact, and the understanding of the chronological order of events.
