Painting of Franz Joseph I Inauguration is Back in Olomouc

An artistic reproduction of a painting of Ferdinand I handing over the crown to Franz Joseph I returned to the consecrated chapel at the Olomouc Town Hall. We are very proud that the reproduction was created by TRINITY ART STUDIO. The result is an artistic reproduction based on precisely performed digitization of the original (at the digitization centre in the Regional Museum in Olomouc) on a scale of 1: 1 in a high quality. Subsequently, the digital data was modified to match the original in terms of colour and to create a faithful reproduction. This was followed by printing on cotton canvas of archival parameters. In the last step, layers of professional lacquers were applied.
