Having dealt with scanners and printers most of my life, I know just how much a scan can ruin a good original. The most common thing is that it desaturates the original, sometimes rather heavily. This is because the very stong light of the scanner reflects on the paper and drowns out some of the color of the scanned original. I usually never use a scanner for copying art pictures since the scan requires so much post-editing. A camera is mostly better since it saves a lot of work. However, here the scan has been restored by Adam Cuerden, who I have come to know as one of our best restorers. If he has the original to compare with and says that this is a good likeness, I trust him. The image deserves another chance. -- Cart (talk) 11:47, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
