Turning Back Time on a Monet Masterpiece

With pioneering 3D mapping and digitization, even the earliest signs of degradation can be identified, without ever touching the surface of a painting. In partnership with the National Gallery of Canada our engineers and museum conservators were able to inspect the fragile surfaces of masterpieces, recording data points finer than 1/10th of a human hair.


In the video below, Scientific Advisor, Mike Jackson, and the National Gallery of Canada’s Director of Conservation and Technical Research, Stephen Gritt, discuss how they digitally restored a Claude Monet masterpiece, after identifying minute flecks of oxidization on the painting surface.
