In the field of engineering, surface metrology is a valuable tool codified by international standards that enables the quantitative study of small-scale surface features. However, it is not recognized as a resource in the field of cultural heritage. Motivated by this fact, in this work, we demonstrate the use and the usefulness of surface metrology based on scanning conoscopic holography for monitoring treatments on the Venetian masterpiece by Tintoretto St. Martial in Glory with the Saints Peter and Paul. We carried out in situ and in-process monitoring of the painting microtexture during an experimental, innovative laser–chemical treatment, and we performed a statistical analysis based on ISO areal field parameters. A wide and in-band roughness analysis through the complementary use of amplitude, spatial, and hybrid parameters confirmed the noninvasive nature of the whole treatment on the painting surface topography, giving us the chance to review and critically discuss the use of these parameters in a real case in heritage science.

Abstract

In the field of engineering, surface metrology is a valuable tool codified by international standards that enables the quantitative study of small-scale surface features. However, it is not recognized as a resource in the field of cultural heritage. Motivated by this fact, in this work, we demonstrate the use and the usefulness of surface metrology based on scanning conoscopic holography for monitoring treatments on the Venetian masterpiece by Tintoretto St. Martial in Glory with the Saints Peter and Paul. We carried out in situ and in-process monitoring of the painting microtexture during an experimental, innovative laser–chemical treatment, and we performed a statistical analysis based on ISO areal field parameters. A wide and in-band roughness analysis through the complementary use of amplitude, spatial, and hybrid parameters confirmed the noninvasive nature of the whole treatment on the painting surface topography, giving us the chance to review and critically discuss the use of these parameters in a real case in heritage science.
