Let van Gogh Paint your Photos

Paintings are a great way to express ideas, skills and views in an artistic and creative fashion. For example, Vincent van Gogh is known for his style signature of expressionism by using bold, choppy and dramatic brush strokes that give paintings a feeling of movement.

But what if you wanted to paint your own images in the style of a famous artist? The latest advances in computer vision and deep networks make this possible. In short, the neural model tries to capture the unique aesthetic features from a given painting and transfer them into a new image.
