In support of art investigation, we propose a new source sepa- ration method
that unmixes a single X-ray scan acquired from double-sided paintings. Unlike
prior source separation meth- ods, which are based on statistical or structural
incoherence of the sources, we use visual images taken from the front- and
back-side of the panel to drive the separation process...
The coupling of the two
imaging modalities is achieved via a new multi-scale dictionary learning
method. Experimental results demonstrate that our method succeeds in the
discrimination of the sources, while state-of-the-art methods fail to do so.
