Caption: Art history laboratory. Art historian analysing a painting using infrared reflectology. She is standing next to the original painting in the background. In the foreground the results of the analysis are seen on a computer screen. Techniques like this, together with X-ray scans, allow art historians to trace the stages in the composition of a painting, as well as revealing traces of earlier artworks, hidden below the final painting. The techniques are also used to detect fraudulent copies of paintings. Photographed in the Museo del Prado, Madrid, Spain.
