Traditional materials were detected on four stucco fragments supposedly still covered by the original decoration.I explained in an earlier post how the National Art Library catalogue, like most library catalogues, contains records of varying quality and detail.This concept is exemplified by the analysis of five painted stuccoes from the Victoria and Albert Museum collection of medieval Hispano-Islamic panels (see Figure 1); The stuccoes are from the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain, and supposedly date from the 14th century. Pigment analysis was requested by Victor Borges, V&A Sculpture conservator as an aid to dating.Samples of the pigmented areas of the stuccoes were first analysed by Raman microscopy, a non-destructive, non-intrusive technique which is particularly suitable for the identification of pigments (see figures 2 and 3).Nobody knows when the first puppet shows were performed in Britain although the Romans probably had puppets, since they were known in Italy.Minstrels in France performed puppet shows as early as the 13th century and would have entertained with them when they came to England.
