About two weeks ago, everybody was talking about the amazing discovery that a painting catalogued as German, early 19th century, by Christie’s in 1998 and offered for $19,000 was an unknown Leonardo da Vinci worth a fortune. How can the experts be now so sure? “Start with instinct, then try a multispectral scanner (from Lumiere Technology), said Timothy Clifford in Time Online. Read this great story as well as the report by Lumiere Technology. And also look at the painting – with Zoomorama (a product that l quite often use on this blog).
The truth of the matter is that over a year ago, Zoomorama published the painting, not yet certified, as a “Profile di Bella Principessa” (Profile of the Beautiful Princess), courtesy of Jean Penicaut, CEO Lumiere Technology, who wanted to show the world the quality of this painting in 80M pixels.
I will dedicate a post to Zoomorama over the next few weeks. It’s not for rare pieces of art only. It’s for anybody who wants to convey a reality-like look-and-feel to any picture – and any item for sale on the Web.
