B.C. study reveals magic of Rembrandt's paintings
A B.C. researcher has uncovered how Dutch master Rembrandt created his enduring works of art, through a technique that guides a viewer's gaze.
Steve DiPaola of the University of British Columbia, studied paintings by the 17th century painter using software that examined lighting and spatial layout.
According to DiPaola, Rembrandt's technique was to paint a sharper focus on certain areas of a piece in order to draw a viewer's eyes to that area.
