Famous Paintings Expanded With DALL-E 2

Here's what some of the famous paintings could have looked like had they been bigger.

Neural networks enthusiasts Denis Shiryaev and Monkeyinlaw have presented a collection of famous paintings expanded by DALL-E 2, OpenAI's recently-released neural network capable of creating images from text input, making realistic edits to existing images, removing unwanted parts from an image, etc. The authors utilized DALL-E 2 in an unorthodox way, turning famous paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, Vasily Vereshchagin, Johannes Vermeer, and many others into bigger versions of themselves by adding new details with the AI.

And here are the results:

The Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci

Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer

The Apotheosis of War by Vasily Vereshchagin

Barge Haulers on the Volga by Ilya Repin

Morning in a Pine Forest by Ivan Shishkin and Konstantin Savitsky

The Ninth Wave by Ivan Aivazovsky

Girl with Peaches by Valentin Serov

The Swan Princess by Mikhail Vrubel

Pink Mountains by Nicholas Roerich

The Christ Pantocrator of St. Catherine's Monastery at Sinai, one of the oldest religious icons
