Split View

Interactive multi-spectral exploration

Thanks to the "split view", a unique tool developed by Artmyn, analyse any detail & the signature under different lights, at the same time.

Discover the restorations, the sketches, repentances and preparatory drawings.

Allow experts, committees, curators or restorers to explore the work on a screen, to move and tilt it as if they had it in their own hands, even from a distance.

Also allows to compare very precisely different paintings from the same artist

Multi-spectral viewer

Visible light

Visible light corresponds to the spectrum sensitive to the human eyes, i.e from 380nm to 750nm, and which covers all the colors.

Ultraviolet

Ultraviolet fluorescence corresponds to the visible light that is emitted by the object when illuminated with non-visible ultraviolet light at 365nm (a.k.a. black light). This view is very useful to assess surface condition of an artwork (restoration, damages etc)

Near Infrared

Near Infrared corresponds to the invisible light between 920nm to 1200nm. This view allows to see under the top layer of an artwork and maybe discover preparatory drawing or even another painting.

Topogaphic view

The topographic view is not extracted from a spectral band but rather from a group of light orientations. It recreates a shading based on the topography of the surface to give a good impression of the 3D on the surface of the work.
