Abstract

About twenty paintings on canvas — carried out from the fourteenth to the beginning of the sixteenth century by authors like Antonio Veneziano, Mantegna, Raphael, Perugino, Francesco Morone, Lotto and Correggio — have been subject to non-destructive fluorescent X analysis (XRF). These analyses have produced significant statistics on the pigments used and a comparison with palettes usually employed in oil painting. The study has shown that significant differences in the choice of pigments were rare and characteristic of individual artists, although some pigments seem to be more congenial to glue tempera rather than to egg tempera or oil.
