Spectral Divergence for Cultural Heritage applications
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2169-2629.2017.25.141  Published OnlineSeptember 2017

Using reflectance spectra allows to compare the pigment mixtures in paintings. In order to improve the actual subjective spectral comparison, we propose to use spectral similarity measures. The Kullback-Leibler spectral Pseudo-Divergence (KLPD) is selected due to his expected metrological properties. The comparison between a subjective assessment and the objective assessment is developed for mixture of pigments coming from a cultural heritage painting. The obtained results show the good quality of the relationship between the subjective results and the objective ones using the KLPD.
