About the ‘Re-create of Vermeer’ NFTs
All classic artworks have to go through the process of restoration with the intention of retaining their original quality - this is rarely successful. In the 'Re-create of Vermeer' program, OpenSkyBlue collaborated with the Vermeer Centre in Delft, The Netherlands, to apply modern image analysis technology to produce highly restored digital copies of the original paintings.
The program deciphers Vermeer’s original intention, thoughts, philosophy, and stories, faithfully restoring Vermeer’s brushstrokes, delicate colors, and use of light from over 300 years ago. Through the ’Re-create of Vermeer‘ program, the original paintings will be converted into NFTs to protect our cultural heritage and to disseminate these masterpieces.
