Abstract: The most straightforward way to assess the glossiness of a surface is by measuring the specular reflectance by use of a specular glossmeter. Although alternative measurement methods have been proposed, this is still the most frequently used instrumental measurement technique for gloss evaluation until today. However, due to both the multidimensional nature of gloss perception and to the initial purpose of a specular glossmeter only to judge the gloss differences of surfaces with similar appearance, specular glossmeter results do not seem to provide a reliable basis for estimating the gloss appearance of a surface. During the past decades, increased attention has been paid to understanding how the human visual system arrives at a particular sensation of surface gloss, and which factors influence this process. This article was established in response to these new insights, and provides the reader an overview of the most important developments and findings regarding gloss measurement and gloss perception over the past 15 years. With the ultimate goal to achieve a better correspondence between gloss measurement and gloss perception in the future, issues of alternative measurement methods are considered, and some suggestions for relevant future research are proposed.
