The Nanotech Claude Monet is the world’s smallest masterpiece recreated by Joel Yang at the Singapore University of Technology and Design.
Claude Monet’s painting Impression, Sunrise which gave the name to the impressionist movement was closely reproduced thanks to careful nanotech engineering. All the vibrant colours of the original have been scaled down to 300 micrometers in what’s being called the world’s smallest recreated masterpiece. It actually is about the size of a single pixel on a standard 17-inch computer monitor. Instead of applying paint to a surface, the technicians replicated the image by using the structures to scatter light on a microscopic scale, producing a palette of around 300 distinct colors.
