Factum Foundation's print tests to achieve the most accurate colour for a facsimile for Raphael's Christ Falling on the Way to Calvary, also known as Lo Spasimo © Oak Taylor-Smith for Factum Foundation

This week, we look at how technologies like digital scanning and artificial intelligence (AI) are being used to create facsimiles of historic paintings. We talk to Adam Lowe of the Factum Foundation, leaders in the field of digital heritage preservation, ahead of three live discussions about technology and heritage on The Art Newspaper's YouTube channel on 1, 2 and 3 May.

Also this week, we talk to Sophie Matisse, the great-granddaughter of Henri, about following in his—and her great-grandmother Amélie’s—footsteps for a new BBC film. You can read more about it here.

And in a slight twist on our Lonely Works series, the painter Lisa Yuskavage tells us about missing the great Van Eyck exhibition in Ghent because of the coronavirus.
