Forget DeepFakes. This robo-Rembrandt with AI for brains is not bad at knocking off paintings

As others have noted above, getting the brush strokes right will be the important thing in duplicating art styles; and not just modern art -- my recollection from my art history classes in college is that "Rembrandt" (or whomever) used his paints texturally in, e.g., The Man in the Golden Helmet. Getting the AI to recognize when a color boundary in a photograph is due to pigmentation or shadow depth will, IMO, be a big step.

To find out where the technology really is at any given point in time, give an AI a really big 3D printer and a photo of a Jackson Pollack painting and see what it can do.
