Chemical Imaging of Works of Art at the Macro Scale: Chemical Imaging Case Studies: The Complementary Nature of Reflectance and XRF Imaging Spectroscopies

Kathryn Dooley, research scientist, National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, presents several case studies exemplifying the use of reflectance imaging spectroscopy and imaging x-ray fluorescence spectroscopy to the study of paintings and works on paper. Dooley spoke at a one-day symposium held at the National Gallery of Art on September 21, 2015, which was supported by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
