Since infrared reflectography is able to see through paint layers to obtain an image of the underdrawing, it not only produces a document of a drawing which has not been seen since the original artist was at work, it also reveals the overall creative process since the initial sketch may be compared with the finished work.

The text is a guide for the use of infrared methods as well as the interpretation of results. The text will be richly illustrated with underdrawings taken primarily from the authors own IRR Research, ranging from Memling and Titian to Picasso. Although the book surveys a variety of IRR applications and presents select samples from the 17th to the 20th century, there will be separate, and more detailed sections on manuscripts, Italian, German and Netherlandish painting of the Renaissance.

This volume will provide a necessary overview of a new field for which there is as yet no introductory text. It has been written for painting conservators, conservation scientists, museum curators, collectors, art historians and students, as well as a wider audience.
