PTM imaging of Rembrandt at the National Gallery

We took our rti-dome to the Gallery and scanned a Rembrandt to see how much detail it would reveal about the textures. It was there for a week's special study - from the Hunterian Art Gallery in Glasgow.

Here you see Rachel Billinge (National Gallery) sliding the painting out from under the imaging dome and Philip Basford (one of the ECS dome developers) in background
