Reproducing the old masters

Revolution

The 3D printing advancements are triggering a revolution in the way some of the historic painters of the world could be experienced. As 3D printing makes it possible to reproduce paint strokes to the microlevel it becomes possible to have near exact copies of any of the master pieces on your own wall for minimal cost.

One of the best known painters that comes to mind for this new technique is Vincent van Gogh, famous for usage of his thick brushes of oil paint.

Other benefits

  • Reproductions can be scaled to match any interior needs.
  • As color decay can become a reality over time, reproductions can be made with the original colors resembling the appearance from the day is was originally painted.

How

Current 3D printing technology combined with giclée layered printing is the way for reproductions to show the exact original relief, mimicking the brush strokes of the original painting.

Prints

Obviously quality can vary. Some extremely fine details oil paintings offer like twisting and mingling layers of paint cannot always be printed yet. Nevertheless, from a normal viewing distance 3D printed paintings easily offer that extra layer of ‘realism’.
