Pigment database Veneria reale

New database available from Centro Conservazione e Restauro dei Beni Culturali La Venaria Reale !


“Integrating the skills it possesses, the Centro has been able to produce a set of around 1200 painting samples with corresponding imaging and point analysis databases. The materials used – totalling 173 between pigments and dyes, 4 for the preparatory drawings, 4 binders and 2 types of oil – were selected to reproduce the principal artistic techniques used from antiquity to contemporary art, presenting combinations with the products most widely used in restoration.
The database is available online as a comparative and reference tool for the study of the royal art works.”
