Mixing art history with different centuries using artificial intelligence

AI art featuring Rembrandt using a cell phone

 

If you’ve been reading the blog lately, you’ve seen that I’ve been very intrigued by various artificial intelligence art apps and seeing what they can do. One angle that amuses me is mixing famous artists with situations that would have never been possible during that artist’s lifetime … whether it’s Van Gogh playing basketball or – in this case, Rembrandt (who lived from 1606-1669) using a cell phone. As you can see below, artificial intelligence apps are pretty good at mimicking a vague resemblance to Rembrandt, the clothing of that time period, as well as his painting style. But what do you think when you see Rembrandt taking a selfie (below left) and talking to his art dealer or arts patron on his cell (below right) …?
