A Vancouver start up has found a way to recreate iconic paintings from Van Gogh and Monet right down to the individual ridges made by their brush strokes.
Until recently, if you wanted a Vincent van Gogh or Monet painting in your home, you had two options: pay millions, or shell out a far more economical sum to get a 2D reproduction.
It’s obvious why museums forbid visitors from touching works of art, but I know I’m not alone when I say I’ve been tempted to step up to a painting and lightly run my fingertips over its surface.
Over the past year, the National Gallery of Canada has worked closely with Verus Art on the first collection of 3D art re-creations.
Ever loved a painting so much that you wanted to feel each brushstroke? Now you can thanks to advanced 3D scanning and printing technology.
Le 18 octobre dernier, j’ai eu le grand privilège d’assister au lancement de la toute première collection d’œuvres d’art en 3D, au Musée des beaux-arts du Canada à Ottawa.
Upon my arrival at the Gallery’s Great Hall, I was surprised to see some of their priceless pieces set up for viewing. Within arm’s reach were pieces by Van Gogh, Monet and Canada’s very own Tom Thomson.
La semaine dernière, en collaboration avec le Musée des beaux arts du Canada, j’ai pu assister au tout premier lancement de la collection de recréations d’oeuvres de Verus Art.
Le 18 octobre 2016, Verus Art (partenariat entre Arius Technology, Larson-Juhl et Océ) et le Musée des Beaux-Arts du Canada ont lancé leur première collection d’œuvres recrées à travers leur collaboration.
A Vancouver company is working with U.S. and Dutch companies to recreate paintings such as Van Gogh’s The Iris.
These hyper-realistic recreations will only cost you $3,500.
While you may drool over Van Goghs and Picassos in the museum or at the auction house, actually owning one of them is something only the richest of the rich, rich, rich are able to do.
Larson-Juhl, the Atlanta headquartered moulding supplier, has announced the launch of Verus Art, provider of re-creations of Master artworks, and is establishing a gallery program.
Canadian-based Verus Art has developed 3-D printing technology that can re-create the most renowned paintings in history.
