Imaging with terahertz (THz) waves offers the capability of seeing through traditionally opaque materials, with maintaining a spatial resolution comparable to that of the naked eye. The use of ultrashort THz pulses allow for depth resolved imaging by time-of-flight analysis of reflected signals from a target. Therefore, THz imaging has proven its versatility as a new imaging technology for inspection and analysis of historical as well as contemporary art, offering detailed information about the internal structure of such objects, complementary to information available by other methods such as x-ray radiography and infrared imaging. Here we present comprehensive, fully depth-resolved imaging and analysis of a historical wall painting, an easel painting and a gilded panel.
