Goya’s hidden painting discovered using X-rays

A hidden painting was found in Amsterdam yesterday underneath a famous master piece by the painter Fransisco de Goya. X-ray technique was used to make this great discovery. I never actually knew that X-rays can be used for such processes, but the article I read in BBC says it was used in 2008 in the same manner and resulted by discovering a painting for the famous Van Gogh. It says that the newly discovered Goya’s painting might have been hidden for political reasons. And that the painting might be for Napoleon Bonaparte’s brother, Joseph.

I just love combining science with art, it just makes everything beautiful & possible.

Read BBC article for more elaboration about the process & the painting.
