Mona Lisa: Inside the Painting
Leonardo's "Mona Lisa" is so well known that we think we have heard everything about it. This book is a report from the front of painting conservation science. Advances in radiography, optical
Spectral imaging of Leonardo Da Vinci ’ s
Two photos of the famous Mona Lisa were taken in October 2004 to contribute towards improving the technical and scientific data of the masterpiece before moving it in April 2005. The capabilities of
Improved Acquisition of Underdrawings in Oil-Paintings Using IR-Reflectography
Forms of infrared analysis have been widely used to evaluate underdrawings in works of art. Although infrared analysis offers an easy yet nondestructive means of removing the overlying paint from the
Multispectral Infrared Reflectography to Differentiate Features in Paintings
This work is focused on the application of multiband reflectography for analysis of pictorial layers and differentiated detection of painting features by generating a set of narrowband NIR images of the painting.
Crisatel High Resolution Multispectral System
A high resolution multispectral image acquisition system for digitizing art paintings for the European CRISATEL Project and of special light projectors.
Scanning multispectral IR reflectography SMIRR: an advanced tool for art diagnostics.
The spectral sensitivity of the detection system, the quality of focusing and uniformity of the acquired images, and the possibility for selective imaging in NIR bands in a registered dataset make SMIRR an exceptional tool for nondestructive inspection of painting surfaces.
Evaluation of system performance of near-infrared imaging devices
Abstract A method is described for the evaluation of the performance of near-infrared imaging devices to detect underdrawing and reworking of paintings. System analyses have been performed on two
A high sensitivity, low noise and high spatial resolution multi-band infrared reflectography camera for the study of paintings and works on paper
A high sensitivity, near-infrared staring array camera with a cold filter that blocked light >2450 nm was constructed with a color-corrected macro lens capable of holding interference filters and was characterized in three spectral bands using test targets and art objects.

An extended spectral angle map for hyperspectral and multispectral imaging
We present an extension to the widely used spectral angle metric, calculating an azimuthal angle around a reference vector. We demonstrate that it provides additional information, thus improving the
