Pigments can be identified using destructive techniques such as removal of a sample from the artwork followed by analysis using techniques such as mass spectrometry (MS) or gas chromatography (GC) coupled with mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Non-destructive applications also exist, an example being Raman spectroscopy, where a pigment is identified from its reflectance spectrum.
Confocal Microscopy in Art Conservation
Confocal microscopy has only recently been applied to Art Conservation. Rachel Barker (now at the Tate Gallery), John Chad (Southampton University), are exploring the utility of CLSM and developing protocols suitable for analysis of fine art paintings.

NOCG Art Restoration and Research
For some works of art, a more in-depth diagnosis and analysis are required. We provide services such as microscopic paint analysis, ultra-violet examination and infra-red analysis, which allows the conservator to penetrate the surface of the painting revealing hidden information. Infrared examination combined with ultra-violet analysis and chemical testing enable our conservators to understand the condition history of a painting before pursuing treatment. Minimal intervention is always the goal in conserving paintings.
