The Uffizi Gallery have sent 50 Venetian Masterpieces for a special loan exhibition to the Hong Kong Museum of Art. This special show, which opened last week, features important works by Titian, Giorgione, Tintoretto and Veronese, in a celebration of Venetian art of the sixteenth century.

However, one of my favourite aspects of the exhibition is a multimedia experience (or 'game') organised by the gallery called AI Titian. Using a rather fun-looking set of interactive screens and cameras, visitors are able to transform themselves into a Titian painting, which is then transferred into a screen-image amongst a small-gallery of Venetian works.

In fact, here is the Director of Leisure and Cultural Services Liu Ming-kwong's AI generated portrait:

It seems that AI is finally getting to grips with the complexities of Old Master Paintings.

The show will run until 28th February 2024.
