Earprint is working with a variety of museums and institutions to develop a series of interactive mobile apps that will allow visitors to take on the role of conservator, examining images from a variety of perspectives and immersing themselves in the work of art using state-of-the-art interactive technology.
Read below to learn about Earprint's app development with the Cleveland Museum of Art.
Portrait of a woman
This Earprint interactive app for the Cleveland Museum of Art puts conservator’s tools - high resolution photographs and scientific imaging - into the hands of visitors. Users can explore Portrait of a Woman using different kinds of light – UV, IR and raking – to understand how conservators separate past restoration work from original paint. This kind of research is used to study and even authenticate works of art – in this case, establishing the painter as Rembrandt.
Powerful photographic tools allow conservators to see below the surface of the painting.
