Artificial intelligence was used to analyze digital X-ray images of the Ghent Altar, which is located in the Catholic Cathedral of St. Bavon in Belgium. Researchers note that AI findings will help improve understanding of the details of art masterpieces and will open up new possibilities for the study and preservation of artwork.
By analyzing complex x-ray images, the new algorithm allows art critics, museum keepers and scientists to better understand the paintings, and the information received can help specialists protect and restore fragile objects.
X-ray images are a valuable tool for studying and restoring paintings, as they can help establish the state of the work and give an idea of the artist’s technique, the researchers noted.
“We would like to see how the development of similar approaches focused on artificial intelligence will affect our ability to detect hidden features in the picture that people have not noticed,” they added.
Helen Dubois, project manager for the preservation of the Ghent Altar, noted that “using artificial intelligence to process X-ray images will provide very useful tools for decoding complex technical images. The structural defects of wooden supports, as well as layers of soil and paint can now be diagnosed with greater accuracy.
