Art Radiography Systems
the specialized system is designed to help art experts or customs expert officers in revealing of hidden secrets or technics and materials used in the works of art
Compared to ultraviolet and infrared light, x-rays have far more energy and thus much shorter wavelengths (less than 10 nm). This high energy enables x-rays to penetrate materials to varying degrees, generating an image that corresponds to an object’s density and composition. X-radiography can provide useful information relating to a artwork’s condition and construction and can reveal compositional changes as well as hidden images beneath visible paint layers.
Technical examination of paintings can provide information about materials and techniques used by artists. It may also reveal the extent of old damages on the painting now concealed by past restoration. Information of this kind can be extremely valuable to conservators when carrying out research before undertaking treatments on paintings. It can also supply important art historical facts that can identify artists, assist in dating and help to uncover forgeries. X-radiography is one technique which can reveal useful information. This technique can show the different elements of a painting, from the canvas or panel it is painted on to the top paint layer.
