Science meets art: investigating pigments in art and archaeology
Professor Robin Clark has used pigment analysis to reveal the secrets of the Lindisfarne Gospels, Gutenberg Bibles, Greek icons, forged papyri and the '36th Vermeer painting'. In this lecture Professor Clark will explain and explore how the technique of Raman spectroscopy has helped in the restoration, conservation and dating of artwork along with the detection of forgeries. This lecture marks 2011 as the International Year of Chemistry.
