Masterpieces painting are treasured with due care and high-security guard as they are of their kinds and the original window of information to gaining knowledge about the classic art.
But now, these state-of-the-art pieces can be recreated down to every stroke and finishing touch to make an exact replica of the original painting. This is possible through the 3D technology and will be useful to experts and students alike, and aid them in studying in detail about the art by seeing and touching them closely. It is known as Verus Art and is the combined effort of the US design firm Larson-Juhl and the Dutch Oce, a Canon Company, Aruis Technologies.
This group aims to combine history with modern day technology to recreate these oil paintings to
The technology used is extremely advanced and can measure the detail to the level of a precision of 10 microns which is equal to 1/10 of the human hair. This was stated by Paul Lindhal, CEO of Arius Technologies, who also said that this scanning of the original piece took 18 hours after which the design would be sent to Holland for reproduction.
Polymer ink is used to layer an aluminium canvas to recreate the 19th-20thcentury works including the Vincent Van Gogh work The Iris. The painting was created in 1889 and its sister work, Irises was sold for $59.3 million at an auction. And now Verus art has acquired the rights to recreate these precious works of art.
The recreation of these Van Gogh masterpieces has given art students and connoisseurs the opportunity to touch, feel and study the art and technique used in these oil paintings that uses thick layers of paints to create a 3D effect on canvas.3d printing technology has indeed opened doors to a new era that will prove beneficial to art projects in future.
