Article
The early modern period is mainly characterised by High Lime-Low Alkali (HLLA) glass, a lime-rich glass made from plant or tree ashes, originating from 14th-century Germany and later used all over Europe. Attempts to link HLLA chemical subgroups to a particular point in time have failed so far. Driven by a request from the archaeological community,...

The understanding of the connection between the value of an image and the value of the materials that were used to make it is limited, especially for stained-glass windows. However, such information can bring-to-light how artistic and economic questions were intertwined and how the final artwork depended on the ranking of the materials. With this p...

The positive impact of daylight on various forms of life is well understood. The daylight conditions a person experiences inside a building strongly depend on the character of the glazing. Contemporary windows maximize the transmission of visible daylight. In post-medieval times glassmakers were confronted with less pure materials. Driven by the Re...
Article
This paper critically compares the performance of four non‐invasive techniques that match the accuracy, flexibility, time‐efficiency, and transportability required for in situ characterization of leaded glass windows: macroscopic X‐ray fluorescence imaging (MA‐XRF), UV–Vis–NIR, Raman spectroscopy, and infrared thermography (IRT). In order to compar...
Conference Paper
This paper presents the rationale of the FENESTRA project, which focuses on the flat-glass collection conserved at the Royal Museums of Art and History, one of the most comprehensive collections of flat glass in the Low Countries. Running through 2021, FENESTRA is funded by the Belgian Science Policy Office. Today, cultural heritage professionals a...
Conference Paper
The Royal Museums of Art and History (Brussels) have unparalleled resources for the study of flat glass providing information between the 13th and the 20th century. The collection is sufficient by itself to illustrate technical and stylistic evolutions of stained glass and the glaziers craft in the Low Countries and Belgium. However, this great qua...

Le couvent des Dominicaines de Notre-Dame-de-Nazareth, voulu par le Charles II roi de Sicile et comte de Provence comme le pendant féminin du couvent de Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume est d’abord établi en 1290 à la Duranne puis transféré deux ans plus tard à Aix-en-Provence. Occupé jusqu’en 1358, cet établissement royal destiné à recevoir cent moni...
Poster
The poster discusses preliminary results of scientific analyses performed on a set of glass tesserae from the Great Mosque of Damascus. Masterpiece of the Islamic architecture, the Mosque was committed by the Umayyad caliph al-Walīd I and built between 705 and 712 AD. The surfaces of the building are decorated by fine and sumptuous mosaics, origin...

Question
I already calculated the colour coordinates of my samples and I would like to plot them in the L*a*b* colour space.
Do anyone already have a file I could use?
or any explanation of how I could proceed to plot the 3D colour space by myself?
I can work with R, MATLAB, IgorPro and Origin.
Thanks a lot!

Project
KOURION’S AMATHOUS GATE CEMETERY, CYPRUS The Excavations of Danielle A. Parks The excavations at Kourion’s Amathous Gate Cemetery in southern Cyprus, directed by the late Dr Danielle Parks (Brock University, Ontario), took place each year from 1995 to 2000, with study seasons from 2001 to 2008 and 2017 to 2019. The project is now in publication phase, with an international publication team, directed by Dr Michael Given (University of Glasgow), with the support of Dr Smadar Gabrieli (University of Sydney and University of Western Australia) and Dr Chris Mavromatis. https://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/humanities/research/archaeologyresearch/currentresearch/kourion/

Project
The main objectives of the ‘Fenestra’ project are research and dissemination, preservation and access. The objectives can be further classified per discipline leading to specific research questions: (1) History of the collection: The aim is to reconstruct the history of the formation of the collection by gathering provenience and contextual data that over time have been separated from the collection. (2) Art historical and archaeological research: The aim is to make a detailed inventory of all material preserved. A combined historical, art historical and archaeological research will be carried out on well-selected sub-collections, including detailed technological examinations and stylistic details. This research will be the foundation for the applied scientific research. It will also give the opportunity to publish a “checklist” volume in the Corpus Vitrearum Belgian series. This study mainly concerns roundels prior to the end of the Ancien Regime, because the monumental stained-glass windows have already been published – most of them in the Corpus Vitrearum inventory series. In fact, the first stained-glass window studied in the first volume of the Belgian series of Corpus Vitrearum, is a panel from the Museum representing an angel holding a streamer, from the Rhine school, dated around 1230-1250. (3) Applied sciences: The goal is to improve the methodology of dating flat glass based on chemical and optical fingerprints (fingerprinting by optical means of potash-, HLLA- and industrial material, investigation of the relation between composition, fabrication, technology and optical transparency as well as research on flashed glass and specific paint layers such as silver stain). (4) Conservation: Examination of the collection as well as perform concrete conservation actions. The goal is to establish a workflow for preventive conservation and long-term storage and maintenance of the collection.
