Art at 28 Billion Pixels


The Italian image technology website Halta Definizione uses advanced definition equipment on the world’s most celebrated Italian masterpieces – allowing viewers to zoom in on the tiniest detail.

Scroll through works by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Caravaggio. Botticelli’s Primavera is made up of 28 billion pixels, a resolution of over 3,000 times that of an average digital camera.

Although the technology is primarily for restoration purposes, artists and art lovers alike will enjoy dissecting the works of the masters as closely as the professionals.
