|Abstract: ||Grego´rio Lopes (c. 1490–1550) was one of the
most prominent painters of the renaissance and Mannerism
in Portugal. The painting “Mater Misericordiae” made for
the Sesimbra Holy House of Mercy, circa 1535–1538, is
one of the most significant works of the artist, and his only
painting on this theme, being also one of the most significant
Portuguese paintings of sixteenth century. The recent
restoration provided the possibility to study materially the
painting for the first time, with a multianalytical
methodology incorporating portable energy-dispersive
X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, scanning electron
microscopy–energy-dispersive spectroscopy, micro-X-ray
diffraction, micro-Raman spectroscopy and high-performance
liquid chromatography coupled to diode array and
mass spectrometry detectors. The analytical study was
complemented by infrared reflectography, allowing the
study of the underdrawing technique and also by dendrochronology
to confirm the date of the wooden panels
(1535–1538). The results of this study were compared with
previous ones on the painter’s workshop, and significant
differences and similitudes were found in the materials and
