"Madonna with Child" by Perugino (1446–1523). Wavelet decomposition can reveal what areas Perugino painted and what parts were probably painted by his apprentices (see me for the article if you are interested). Wavelet analysis has also been used to detect forgeries and to determine whether images are true photographs or computer generated. Wavelets have also been used in Pixar movies to add fine detail to computer animation.
