    I enjoyed the diffraction video. I find the idea of pixel peeping a painting to be odd. There may be a scientific reason for photographing the painting at this resolution and no one will ever be able to make a fake. Seeing this painting in person, or any other painting, can never be replaced by a photo, especially the larger paintings.
