Modigliani’s lost lover

The NeoMasters Project headed by Anthony Bourached and George Cann. Are on a mission to discover hidden paintings on canvases that were reused by artists

Bourached is a specialist in high dimensional neuroscience, trying to model human behaviour through AI. Cann who’s main focus is analysing trace gases in Martian atmosphere and argues that this project could deepen our understanding of art.

“There are potentially thousands of art works out there that are hidden beneath layers of paint. In the next few years, we’ll be able to bring a light into this darkened gallery”.

Modigliani’s 1917 Portrait of a girl, which was found to conceal an earlier painting.

Who would of thought technology could unlock these ghosts forgotten and conceal by the artists strokes of paint on to canvas.
