Art: X-Raying the Renaissance

"This web site is an adaptation of the computer kiosk which accompanies the exhibition Investigating the Renaissance, currently on view in [Harvard's] Fogg Art Museum....Computers and new imaging technologies are fast becoming an integral part of the work of conservation.... This interactive program demonstrates the ways in which computer technology can be harnessed to add to our knowledge about Renaissance paintings and how they were made.... Computer-assisted imaging can reveal aspects of the process of making art not visible to the unaided eye. It also reveals the alterations of intervening centuries, alterations that were intended to repair the ravages of time and use, and to adjust images to reflect changing aesthetic preferences." - from the website. <>
