Visit of Ms. Marina Ruiz-Molina

Ms. Marina Ruiz-Molina, Paper Conservator from The MET, New York City visited earlier this month on 3rd and 4th March 2023 for her research project that looked into analysis and comparative study of pigments used in Indian paintings, with the aid of Multi spectral imaging techniques.

She came along with newly developed Multi spectral imaging lights from The MET and imaged a few Mewar paintings from Udaipur's City Palace Museum's collection along with its conservation team. These paintings - dating from first half of 18th century onwards - revealed interesting preliminary findings regarding the pigments used which would be analyzed and interpreted further, to establish concrete results.
