You are currently viewing Artificial intelligence touch on Rembrandt’s Night Watch!  The most detailed photograph of a work of art taken

Undoubtedly, there are many advantages brought by developing technology and artificial intelligence. The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam is aware of this advantage. Because the Rijksmuseum took advantage of artificial intelligence to take the largest and most detailed photograph of a work of art ever.


The Rijksmuseum has published the most detailed and largest photograph in the history of art, with months of effort, by dealing with Rembrandt van Rijn’s rare work, The Night Watch, completed in 1642.

Using the 100-megapixel Hasselblad H6D 400 MS camera, the team took 8,439 individual photos measuring 5.5 cm x 4.1 cm.

By combining 8,439 separate photos, a 717 gigapixel ultra-high resolution photo with a total file size of 5.6 terabytes was created.

It was stated that the distance between the two pixels is 5 micrometers, and artificial intelligence was used to bring these small photos together.


The museum noted that the Night’s Watch’s 717-gigapixel photo is four times sharper than its predecessor, which it released about 18 months ago.
