Objective / insight
Rembrandt’s last painting is almost 4 centuries old
Until nowadays, data has mainly been used to improve business’ performance
INPG, in collaboration with Microsoft, the Delft University of Technology and the Mauritshuis Museum, therefore decided to use data to touch the human soul by offering a new AI-made Rembrandt painting to the world
Rembrandt’s paintings have been thoroughly analyzed for example by calculating the average distance between the eyes of the people on the paintings according to gender and age.
Algorithms have then been set up to draw a new painting in Rembrandts’ style.
The project also aimed at promoting Dutch art in general
3D scanning has been used in order to get a height map of the painting
Algorithms have been developed to find patterns across Rembrandt’s numerous paintings
3D printing was necessary to follow percisely the algorithms’ instructions
