The Digital Mona Lisa

In 1964, H. Philip Peterson of Control Data Corporation used a CDC 3200 computer and a scanner to create a digital version of the Mona Lisa.

The production process took 14 hours to complete the image which contained 100,000 pixels that were plotted using numerals, sometimes overprinted, to approximate the required density.
