Abstract

In a previous article we have discussed a remarkable software which solves a difficult task, that of having a 3D facial reconstruction from a single 2D image. This software was developed by Jackson, Bulat, Argyriou and Tzimiropoulos at the University of Nottingham and Kingston University. We have also shown that the software can be applied to painted portraits of persons or to pictures of marble busts. Here we apply the software to a 3D reconstruction of some faces obtained from paintings of Leonardo da Vinci (La Gioconda, John the Baptiste, Bacchus and the Salvator Mundi). We discuss in particular the Salvator Mundi.

Keywords: Image Processing, 3D reconstruction, Leonardo da Vinci, Salvator Mundi
