Since the composition of the ink varied , the research allows to link certain prints to a specific production period. This enables a more precise dating and a clustering of prints from different collections into groups of almost identical production! #MuseumWeek #RainbowMW

This analysis makes it possible to examine the composition of the colour of each print. 

The same research was done earlier on prints from the same series, owned by @V_and_A in London and @metmuseum in New York.

Japanese prints were made in several reprints over the years, using the same printing blocks to reprint the same image.

In this research, a light source (FORS) is used to analyse the reflection of different pigements, such as Prussian blue or indigo.
