Researchers at TU Delft in the Netherlands have recently developed a convolutional neural network (CNN)-based model to reconstruct drawings that have deteriorated over time. In their study, published in Springer’s Machine Vision and Applications, they specifically used the model to reconstruct some of Vincent Van Gogh’s drawings that were ruined over the years due to ink fading and discoloration.
