AI Generated Landscape Paintings
Using an implementation of Progressive Growing of GANs and a corpus of tens of thousands of landscape oil paintings scraped from WikiArt, a neural network was trained to create new landscape paintings.

The resulting landscape paintings are fairly realistic, while also being strangely surreal. One can tell that whatever painted these has little idea of how the physical world works; often painting trees with floating branches, and multiple trees having joined trunks.

The longer the network is trained, the more it tends to producing more murky and dark paintings. These paintings can be seen towards the bottom of this page. Towards the end of training, it started to paint more and more paintings with unrecognizable objects and forms included. The probable answer for this is some form of mode collapse.

Nevertheless, the results are interesting.
