AI Reimagines What 33 Famous Historical And Popular Figures ‘Really’ Looked Like.

Born in the contemporary era, it’s easy to overlook the vast disparities that existed before us. In earlier times, people had to rely on an artist’s interpretive skill or a low-resolution black-and-white photograph to gauge someone’s appearance. Despite the artists’ sincere efforts, paintings seldom attained the same degree of authenticity as photographs. That’s why there is a persistent curiosity about uncovering the genuine appearances of famous historical figures, devoid of any subjective artistic influences, and that’s where artist Bas Uterwijk, a photographer from Amsterdam, comes in.

Bas uses artificial intelligence to transform artworks, sculptures, and various historical artifacts into lifelike representations of how these famous people from the past might have looked like in real life. Advancements in technology have made it possible to satisfy your curiosity about the true appearances of iconic figures like the Mona Lisa, Van Gogh, or Shakespeare.
