Fujifilm Partners with Van Gogh Museum to Sell 3-D Art Replicas
- August 26, 2013 17:46
Fujifilm has pioneered a new method of reproducing artwork to a near-exact replica of the original.
These reproductions include grooves of paint and textures that match the real artwork. Even the frames and backs of the artworks will be scanned and replicated.
Using a combination of 3-D scans and the highest quality prints, a process called Reliefography was the result of over 7 years of reasearch and development.
In a partnership with the Van Gogh Museum, Fujifilm will offer replicas (or "Relievos") of van Gogh's most famous works. The museum has a three-year exclusive contract for the technology before it becomes available to the wider market.
The process will allow only three Relievos to be produced per day. The cost will run about $34,000 per image.
