Imaging at work at the GCI

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


At the Getty Conservation Institute, the incorporation of recent imaging advances into our work has allowed us to explore new avenues of research, develop holistic conservation strategies, and more effectively communicate what we do. Imaging has expanded far beyond its traditional role as a means of documentation. Newly developed imaging methods provide a wide range of information critical to the understanding and conservation of cultural heritage--from surface properties such as color and texture, to the location and shapes of underlying features, to the chemical composition or physical properties of individual components. Imaging not only helps distinguish original from restoration materials
