University of Jyväskylä´s press release on the Monet research

University of Jyväskylä´s RECENART mobile laboratory team, Tiina Koivulahti, Juhani Huuskonen, Ilkka Pölönen and Seppo Hornytzkyj visited Serlachius Museums last week. They wanted us to research Monet´s haystack painting, which did not have a visible signature.

With hyperspectral imaging the Monet signature was found underneath the paintlayers. Also the pigment analysis made by XRF-spectrometer confirmed that the pigments are suited to Monet´s production.
