A small exhibition at the Museo del Prado in Madrid was designed to give the blind and those with limited sight an opportunity to create mental images of paintings by feeling them. There are six replicas of famous works in the exhibit. The paintings are created using high-resolution images that are treated with a chemical process and ink to add volume and texture to certain areas of the work. One visitor who had seen the one of the actual paintings before losing his eyesight in his youth said, "It's one thing to more or less remember what it was like and another to be able to touch it in all its details. It's like getting back my eyesight." http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/07/arts/design/at-museo-del-prado-blind-visitors-can-touch-masterpieces.html
