Something a little bit lighter for today’s post. I have recently discovered this YouTube channel which takes paintings and photos of historical figures and, using computer enhancement, colorizes them and provides expressive motions such as blinking and smiling. With some female images, they will even alter makeup and hairstyle to give the viewer an idea of what the person may have looked like in modern times. It’s kind of cool and creepy at the same time. In this short video, Grand Duchess Maria – one of Tsar Nicholas II’s four daughters – is given the enhanced image treatment.
