The latest digital imaging techniques are literally shedding new light on the ingenious variety of materials that have been used over the centuries to create artists' paint pigments.

A new exhibition at the National Gallery in London is looking at the history of colour making over time.

Preparations for the exhibition have been given a helping hand with a state-of the art positioning easel that gives the ability to examine great works of art in unprecedented detail.

The easel was provided through the support of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.

Find out more about the easel and how it is helping conservation work at the National Gallery.
