Spectral Imaging enables the stratigraphic study of artworks by observation in spectral regions which human eye is not sensitive to; namely in the ultraviolet (350nm-400nm) and the near infrared (700nm-1200nm). The detailed imaging of the individual layers that compose the artwork is possible, enabling thus the detection of protective coating layers, possible over-paintings, retouches and restoration interventions, the presence of surface pollutants, as well as invisible under-drawings.
