Haltadefinizione – Hi Rez Masterpieces

Haltadefinizione, in cooperation with the Italian Arts Ministry has released super-hi-rez (28 billion pixels) images of painting masterpieces like Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus” and other works by Caravaggio and Da Vinci. The process requires hundreds of close up photographs that are stitched together digitally. It really is impressive to be able to zoom right into the image and see everything from age cracks to brush strokes. Unfortunately, this “free look” is a limited time offer, hence the annoying watermarks, but it’s worth it to get up close and personal with some of the greatest artwork man has ever created.
