Rembrandt's paintings come to life

Rembrandt's paintings come to life

Classic art meets digital animation

When you are contemplating a work of art it´s easy to let your mind go beyond the still images and imagine what were the characters in the portraits doing while being captured in the canvas. Now you can actually see Rembrandt´s paintings come to life in the animations made by the creative studio CS Media, who produced them for Dutch telecommunications KPN, the Rijksmuseum’s main sponsor.

The paintings used for the animations are part of the twelve canvases from The Late Rembrandt Exhibition. The movements are very subtle and delicate which produces a beautiful result. The page turning in the "Sampling Officials of the Drapers' Guild" looks great!

Take a look to the living Rembrandts in the players below.
