This paper describes our work on the problem of reconstructing the original visual appearance of underpaintings (paintings that have been painted over and are now covered by a new surface painting) from noninvasive X-ray fluorescence imaging data of their canvases. This recently-developed imaging technique yields data revealing the concentrations of various(More)
This paper describes our methods for repairing and restoring images of hidden paintings (paintings that have been painted over and are now covered by a new surface painting) that have been obtained via noninvasive X-ray fluorescence imaging of their canvases. This recently developed imaging technique measures the concentrations of various chemical elements(More)
