Start-up company InsightART, from the ESA Business Incubation Centre (BIC) in the Czech Republic, has developed an innovative scanner to analyse art based on the Timepix sensing device.For paintings it ‘exposes’ every different pigment separately, with each pigment be assigned a colour to help with visual analysis. This can help art experts to ascertain whether underlying images and/or materials are consistent with both the artist’s style and the date ascribed to the painting. The same kind of scanner can also be attached to a robotic arm used to analyse statues and other three-dimensional objects.
