Haltadefinizione has performed ultra-high resolution Gigapixel + 3D digital photography on the “Portrait of W. A. Mozart at the age of 13”.
As part of the celebrations honoring Mozart upon the 250th anniversary of his 1770 sojourn in Verona and around Italy, Haltadefinizione has performed ultra-high resolution Gigapixel + 3D digital photography on the “Portrait of W. A. Mozart at the age of 13” which is exhibited in the Sculpture Gallery of the Museum of Castelvecchio.
This painting is dated 1770 and is attributed to the painter Giambettino Cignaroli of Verona. It is the most important piece of evidence from the composer’s first stay in Verona.
The painting’s surface was photographed with the Robin scanner, a robotic system capable of mapping every part of a painting’s physical form, using digital imaging techniques developed to monitor the painting’s condition, together with Haltadefinizione’s high-tech partner company Memooria.
This non-invasive photographic technique creates a very high quality image that faithfully reproduces colors, shadings, details, shape, sharpness and light on the painting’s surface.
The three-dimensional models thus acquired are an important source of information for researchers monitoring the conservation status of works of art. It is now possible to reproduce the details of a painting’s shape and contours to create a three-dimensional map that displays the form of the work. 3D models also make it possible to see brush strokes and surface irregularities with extreme precision and to see changes on a macroscopic and a microscopic level.
