Yesterday, 'The Next Rembrandt' was unveiled in Amsterdam: a 3D printed painting, made solely from data of Rembrandt's body of work. Thus bringing the Master of Light and Shadow back to life to create one more painting. Only this time, data is the painter, and technology the brush. A portrait of a man in black 17th-century clothing with a white collar and a hat has been unveiled in front of a packed auditorium.
