Abstract: The long lost painting "Trumpeting Putto" was discovered and now is not only in the focus of art historian, but has also scientific interest too. We underwent this rare case of an inorganic layered artwork a non-destructive material investigation by employing Raman and MIMOSII Fe-57 Mossbauer spectroscopy. First results indicate several layers, where two layers of different pigments are on an inorganic background layer stabilised by a metallic wire within a wooden frame structure.
