Mad Art Cast: Finding Hidden Faces In Paintings

Welcome to another episode of Mad Art Cast! Today we discuss a new technology being used to look inside and under paintings of the past and in particular Dagas’ Portrait of a Woman.

Was it the artist’s decision to paint over one painting not being respected when scientists did their high tech scan or is this opening up a much bigger and more interesting look at Degas and his techniques? We disagree on the show. Tell us what you think in the comments!
