Get up close with ultra-high resolution images

The exhibition Royal Lithography and Legacy, a collection of lithographs from paintings by Raja Ravi Varma can be viewed in never before seen definition thanks to Gigapixel technology using Google Arts & Culture’s Art Camera, a custom built device that takes hundreds of close-up images that are then stitched together to create an intensely detailed whole which enables the highest ever resolution image to be captured.

Viewers can explore 60 rare lithographs and their speckled effect in extraordinary detail and experience them far beyond what is visible to the naked eye, thanks to the zoom technology.
