The Next Rembrandt

This is fascinating. The Next Rembrandt is a project that deconstructed Rembrandt van Rijn’s paintings and used the data to construct a new painting.

Reminds me of the fascinating documentary: Tim’s Vermeer about Tim Jenison’s attempt(s) to copy a particular Johannes Vermeer painting.

Interesting that both of these guys were Dutch artists and both of them are famous for their depiction of light.

    1. I agree Edward, but of course, one of the things that makes “real” art real is that a human being made it. I do like the idea that instead of copying a Rembrandt they made a totally new one.
