X-Ray Examination of Art

  • X-ray examination is a non-destructive technique which can show the structural elements of a painting, detect certain pigments, and allow us to see tears, holes, and edges that have been cut.

  • In the case of ceramics, X-ray examination can spot forgeries such as that seen in the photo to left, in which you can see that shards were glued together to create the jug.

  • We handle the entire X-ray process for you, from having your art X-rayed to interpreting the results, which we record in a detailed report.
