Documentation

In addition to normal treatment documentation, Jennifer specializes in the documentation of artwork using ultraviolet (UV) induced visible fluorescence. This type of documentation can provide important insight into the construction and deterioration of artwork. Jennifer also conducts training workshops for the UV Innovations standard - Target-UV.

Types of documentation:

  • Normal light: captures image information, color and condition

  • Raking light: captures distortions in the support and surface texture

  • Specular light: captures surface texture

  • Transmitted light: captures watermarks, signatures on mounted prints, negatives

  • UV-Visible fluorescence: captures information about adhesives, pigments and stains

  • Scanning: captures image information, typically used for negatives
