During 2003 and 2004, I have been working with the Art Institute of Chicago as they have re-examined Georges Seurat's La Grande Jatte, 1884.

A major exhibition, Seurat and the Making of "La Grande Jatte" is ongoing at the Art Institute through September 19, 2004. A catalog documents the exhibition and the extensive exploration of this icon of pointillism.

I was involved in the following tasks:

Color profiling of the digital camera

Non-destructive spectral reflectance measurements

Rejuvenating the painting using color and imaging science: A simulation
