IRR examination

The RKD carries out research on commission by museums, auction houses, art dealers and private parties using IRR equipment. Infrared reflectography is a scientific research method which allows for the optical penetration of paint layers of a painting. In this way the underlying sketch or drawing becomes visible. Examination with IRR offers insight into this part of the creative process long after the painting was originally made. IRR can also determine if any changes have been made to layers of the painting.
