THM-GCMS and FTIR for the study of binding media in Yellow Islands by Jackson Pollock and Break Point by Fiona Banner

2004

Abstract

Throughout the 20th century a number of binding media, including synthetic resins, have been employed in paints. It is only very recently that thermally assisted hydrolysis and methylation-gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (THM-GCMS) has been used for the identification of a wide variety of binding media employed in the 20th century art. This paper shows as THM-GCMS was successfully used in conjunction with Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy for the study of binding media in samples from Yellow Islands by Jackson Pollock [Tate Collection, T00436] and Break Point by Fiona Banner [Tate Collection, T07501].
