Pigments et colorants dans l'art de l'estampe japonaise ukiyo-e (XVIIIe - XIXe siècles) : apports de l'imagerie hyperspectrale et de la spectroscopie infrarouge

Abstract : Ukiyo-e means the prints produced in Japan between the 17th and 19th centuries. They reflect the social and economic changes in Japanese society during the Edo period (1615-1868), era of peace and prosperity, and adopt a new iconography depicting scenes of everyday life and the pleasures of life. The techniques and materials used by artists are also changing. The first coloured prints appear in the early 18th century. From the 19th century, with Japan's economic opening, chemical pigments imported from the West enrich the available color palette. The Federico Torralba Collection (Museum of Zaragoza, Spain) includes ukiyo-e prints representative of the 18th and 19th centuries. Access to this corpus gives us the opportunity to study the materials used, through appropriate non-invasive and contactless methods, and to follow the evolution of technologies and/or materials (local or imported) used. A methodological development is imperative to analyse and characterise these materials (pigments, dyes, binders), including organic dyes which are difficult to identify. Reflectance spectroscopy techniques in the infrared (FORS) and Hyperspectral Imaging (HSI) are theoretically capable of distinguishing organic from inorganic materials. However, the analysed works are often complex systems and the data obtained are difficult to interpret with certainty for the most of the time. It is therefore essential to establish a multianalytical strategy to cross the data in order to get maximum information allowing the identification of materials. The study of the evolution of materials over time gives the opportunity to obtain important information in art history and history of technology, reflecting the cultural and societal evolution in 19th century Japan.
