Digitisation of a painting of Henry John Gauntlett.

Project Details

  • Resolution: 292 dpi
  • Orginal Size: 69.55cm x 81.8cm


The original painting's varnish had darkened with age. This is represented in the scanned image. Compare this with the picture taken with a digital camera. You can see that the camera has automatically altered the colour balance of the original and that finer facial details are missing. The intrinsic characteristics of an aged oil painting are also absent.
