Abstract

M3art database contains data about colours behaviour in VIS and NIR spectral bands. The database is open, publicly available and should serve as the knowledge base for further study of optical properties of pigments, drawing materials and canvases. The content of database consists of FORS and digital camera data collected in range 400-1050nm. Measurements were made on up to three layer samples composed of canvas, underdrawing and colour layers. The colorants were selected to represent historical painting techniques in Gothic and Renaissance According to underdrawing acquisition ability four material categories were established.
