According to The Baltimore Sun, this discovery was made possible by the Baltimore Museum of Art, who hired digital imaging lab Direct Dimensions to scan pieces for its exhibition “Matisse: Painter as Sculptor,” now on display. The engineers’ laser scanning technology—used most commonly in modeling industrial parts and prostheses—re-created three-dimensional computer models of the artist’s sculptures to determine their origins. How we love it when both sides of the brain’s hemispheres synchronize.
The exhibition is on display through Feb 3.
