Contemporary abstract art
Last week’s #BKMconservation post focused on the treatment of flaking paint in Stuart Davis’s The Mellow Pad. Now we can look closer at the materials through technical analysis. Multispectral imaging is a great way to lay foundation that will inform the fine-tuned technical work to come—and it is proof that science can be beautiful!The images above were created by capturing The Mellow Pad’s behavior in different wavelengths of light (energy). Different types of light are often a conservator’...
