THz-TDI has been applied for imaging an hidden painting and other subsurface composition layers of a 17C panel painting belonging to the National Gallery of Denmark. C- and B-scans realized by THz have been compared with images obtained by x-ray radiography, thus helping in a deep understanding of the strengths and limitations of this technique for art diagnostic purpose and in defining its rule among the other complementary investigation tools for art pieces inspection.
