ABSTRACT
Analytical characterisation of natural earths (ochres, siennas, umbers and green earths) has been carried out using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) coupled to an energy dispersive X-Ray spectrometer (EDS). The study of these pigments, which are found in works of art, is very important since it can shed light on their source or the pictorial technique used. FTIR spectroscopy is suitable for the identification and differentiation of ochres and siennas. According to the matrix of the sample, FTIR allows the classification of ochres into ochres containing kaolinite and ochres containing sulphate. One of the goals of this research has been to establish a relationship between the matrix and the source of the samples tested. SEM-EDS is probably a better technique than FTIR for characterising umbers and green earths since they do not exhibit significant differences when FTIR studies are performed.
