Metal soaps in art : conservation and research by Francesca Casadio( )

15 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This go-to reference work surveys the current state of knowledge in the field of metal soap-related degradation phenomena in art works. It contains detailed descriptions and images of the different phenomena and addresses the practical aspects of soap formation, preventive conservation, and treatment. The occurrence of metal soaps is one of the defining issues in the conservation of painted surfaces, and one that presently leaves innumerable open questions. It is estimated that around 70% of paintings in museum collections are affected by some form of metal soap-related degradation. In recent years, significant advances have been made in the detection and characterization of these compounds through interdisciplinary approaches including conventional spectroscopy and microscopy as well as emerging synchrotron-based techniques. This book for the first time captures a panoramic overview of the state of knowledge of metal soaps related to both scientific analysis and implications for conservation and treatment. It also critically examines open questions. The book is accessible to audiences with varied backgrounds (e.g. conservators, students of conservation science) while simultaneously presenting the technical details indispensable for academics and researchers active in this field
Rubens, Rembrandt, and drawing in the Golden Age by Victoria Sancho Lobis( Book )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An extraordinary history of Netherlandish drawing, focused on the training and skill of artists during the long 17th century. With a lively narrative thread and thematic chapters, this book offers an exceptional introduction to Dutch and Flemish drawing during the long 17th century. Victoria Sancho Lobis discusses the many roles of drawing in artistic training, its function in the production of works in other media, and its emergence as a medium in its own right. Beautifully illustrated with some 120 drawings by artists including Rembrandt van Rijn, Peter Paul Rubens, Hendrick Goltzius, Gerrit von Honthorst, and Jacob De Gheyn, this book surveys current methodologies of studying these works and features a brief history of Dutch papermaking and watermarks as well as a glossary. Paying careful attention to materials and techniques, and informed by recent conservation treatments, Lobis explains how to look at these drawings as records of experimentation and skill, true windows into the artist's mind.00Exhibition: The Art Institute of Chicago, USA (28.09.2019-05.01.2020)
Caillebotte : paintings and drawings at the Art Institute of Chicago by Art Institute of Chicago( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Groundbreaking conservation and research discoveries about the remarkable and beloved painting Paris Street; Rainy Day are revealed this third volume in the Art Institute's digital series on the Impressionist circle. Among the many digital assets in the catalogue is a video filmed on the very street that the artist depicted; it explains how Caillebotte may have used a camera lucida to create his preparatory sketch of the streetscape and how this sketch was used in the creation of the painting. Interactive and layered high-resolution imaging, an additional five videos, and previously unpublished technical photographs unveil extensive new research on this and the other works in the Art Institute's collection. The publication features a glossary, scans of archival materials, and biographical information about historical collectors significant to the museum
Manet : paintings and works on paper at the Art Institute of Chicago by Art Institute of Chicago( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Considered by many to be the father of modernism, Manet is best known for his portrayal of the kaleidoscopic experience of modern Paris. Through his depictions of fashionable high society and the marginalized poor, the spectacle of the boulevard, the bustling café, and the frenetic racetrack, Manet challenged entrenched academic models and influenced the younger group of artists who would come to be known as the Impressionists. The museum's rich collection of paintings and works on paper mirrors this wide range of subject matter and reveals Manet's varied artistic practice."--Director's statement
Analytical chemistry for cultural heritage( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The series Topics in Current Chemistry Collections presents critical reviews from the journal Topics in Current Chemistry organized in topical volumes. The scope of coverage is all areas of chemical science including the interfaces with related disciplines such as biology, medicine and materials science. The goal of each thematic volume is to give the non-specialist reader, whether in academia or industry, a comprehensive insight into an area where new research is emerging which is of interest to a larger scientific audience. Each review within the volume critically surveys one aspect of that topic and places it within the context of the volume as a whole. The most significant developments of the last 5 to 10 years are presented using selected examples to illustrate the principles discussed. The coverage is not intended to be an exhaustive summary of the field or include large quantities of data, but should rather be conceptual, concentrating on the methodological thinking that will allow the non-specialist reader to understand the information presented. Contributions also offer an outlook on potential future developments in the field

Roman art at the Art Institute of Chicago by Katharine A Raff( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 165 artworks featured in the catalogue are the highest-quality and most representative objects in this area of the museum's collection. They cover nearly one thousand years of Roman history, beginning in the third century B.C. and extending through the imperial period into late antiquity. Collected over the course of more than 125 years, they represent a variety of forms and media that reflect the diversity of artistic production in the Roman world."--Introduction

Imagerie de photoluminescence synchrotron pour l'étude de matériaux anciens semi-conducteurs by Tatiana Séverin-Fabiani( )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Synchrotron photoluminescence imaging has emerged as a promisingmethod to study heterogeneous materials,composed of inorganic and organic compounds as those in ancient materials sciences.During this Ph.D., we have further developed the existing photoluminescencemicroscopy set-up of the DISCO beamline at the SOLEIL synchrotron, to identify new photoluminescence markers that allow characterizing physico-chemical processes taking place during the manufacturing or alteration processes of ancient materials. This work led to the development of an optimized multi-spectral microscopy set-up. The optical development of an homogeneous illumination, the optimisation of detection and the radiometric calibration of the set-up led to quantitative photoluminescence images. This set-up has been optimized to respond at best to archaeological and cultural heritage questions with a topological, chemical, electronic and crystalline analysis. Those new instrumental developments were tested on real systems made of wide-bandgap semiconductors. By studying historical artists' pigments composed of zinc oxide (ZnO), we have shown that the photoluminescence properties allow discriminating homogeneous pigments at macro-scale from the heterogeneity oh the photoluminescence response at the grain scale. Two copperbasedarchaeological artefacts and a bronze slag were studied. Particularly, the study of cuprous oxide (Cu2O) pointed out the considerable interest of multi-spectral photoluminescence analysis to retrieve the operational sequence of metallurgy and to provide new information for a better understanding of alteration processes.This work demonstrated the potential of this new methodology and the interest to develop such a method for ancient materials, that are characterized by a strong heterogeneity at successive scales
