Washington Post: Artificial intelligence is restoring lost works by Klimt, Picasso and Rembrandt. Not everyone is happy about it.. “Gustav Klimt’s 1900 painting ‘Philosophy’ might have been remembered as a pivotal artwork. Made at a turning point in the artist’s career, it was vividly colored, dramatically composed — even provocative in its blatant nudity and unflinching emotion. But in 1945, the work was destroyed in a fire and essentially lost to history. For decades, only black-and-white photographs of ‘Philosophy’ existed. Now, thanks to artificial intelligence, we can see the work in full color. But does the re-creation really look like the original? Does it even look like a Klimt?”
