Paper Abstract

A non-invasive and non-contact optical method for tracking overall and local deformations of canvas painting is presented. The technique was tested on a model painting on canvas with inhomogeneities introduced by infilling gaps, mending tears, and applying patches on the reverse of the canvas. The deformation of the sample was induced by changes of relative humidity. The feasibility of 3D Digital Image Correlation technique for evaluation of conservation methods is discussed.
