Now, see Van Gogh`s Sunflower in 3D
London: In a first, scientists have made 3D reproductions of artistic masterpieces, such as a Rembrandt self-portrait and one of Vincent Van Gogh`s sunflowers series.
The 3D reproductions are so detailed that they show the exact brush strokes and build-up of paint on the canvas achieved by the master artists.
The two-camera scanner developed by experts at the Delft University of Technology in Holland traversed the original masterpieces to record depth and colour, `The Sunday Times` reported.
The resulting image of the peaks and troughs of paint resembles the topography of a landscape when viewed from the side.
Researchers created 3D reproductions of Rembrandt`s The Jewish Bride, from the 1660s, a Rembrandt self-portrait and one of Vincent Van Gogh`s sunflowers series.
Each camera used to scan the paintings had a capacity of 40 mega-pixels and was fitted on a frame to allow the artwork to be copied in minute detail in sections measuring 10cm by 15cm.
