History re-photographed: This is a project to restore original greyscale images so that they contain a fair representation of the original colour content. A number of algorithms have been developed and some are continually being improved. The mathematical analysis and the necessary algorithms are the intellectual property of Robin Marshall and hence the colour component of the images here are copyright. Licences are avaiable for commercial use. Private use, beyond viewing the images on this web page is not permitted.To see a larger version, click on the image. All images are availabl at higher resolution, from 1600 pixels on the longest edge to over 3000 in some cases.

 

James Joule Oil Painting 1863 James Prescott Joule was painted by Geroge Patten in 1863. The painting was destroyed during an air raid on Manchester in 1944. However, a good quality stell plate engraving was made for Jouole's obituary and I have a good print off that. It then becomes a long story to recreate a new 1863 oil painting, which is not George Patten's 150 year old painting, but which in 150 years will have taken its place in science history. The image here shows how things are coming along. There is still some way to go. A 95x70cm oil on canvas will exist by this time next year.
