Behind the Scenes: ARTMYN's Pioneering Scanner

Launch Slideshow

The start of Sotheby’s exclusive collaboration with Swiss startup ARTMYN kicked off last week, with the arrival of the custom-built ARTMYN scanner. The pioneering scanning and display technology uses different light sources and sophisticated algorithms to create unique, interactive, 5D images that provide an unprecedented visual experience by bringing to life the artwork’s texture and composition. As Sotheby's prepares for the New York May sales season, ARTMYN scanned works from the upcoming Impressionist & Modern, Contemporary, American, Latin American and Master Paintings sales. Click through for a behind-the-scenes look at the portable ARTMYN scanner, and stay tuned for the multi-dimensional images that will be available through Sotheby’s website, mobile and television apps.
