From the Smithsonian comes news – and a must-see fascinating video – about a painting created using data from more than 168,000 fragments of Rembrandt’s work, trained to paint in Rembrandt’s signature style.

The video shows how the team used scanning, 3D printing, deep learning and inventiveness to create a “new” painting in Rembrandt’s style, and of a subject that Rembrandt would have chosen.

Sponsored by ING and Microsoft, with advice from TUDelft, Mauritshuis and the HET Rembrandthuis Museum, this video says it all.
