Abstract

A polychrome from the Rococo period was analysed by use of two laser-based analytical techniques, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and Raman microscopy. The analysis, performed on a fragment of a gilded altarpiece from the church of Escatrón, Zaragoza, Spain, provided detailed spectral data that have been used for the identification of pigments. LIBS measurements yielded elemental analytical data that suggest the presence of certain pigments and, in addition, provide information on the stratigraphy of the paint layers. Identification of most pigments and of the materials used in the preparation layer was performed by Raman microscopy.
