Every digital translation involves a loss of information from its analog origin. With this ongoing research I’m trying to determine how much information you can subtract to a digital art reproduction and still keep it recognizable and enjoyable, focusing on famous artworks since the Renaissance.

The results are these tiny low-res images, which maintain some kind of aesthetic value and an obvious link to the original artworks. But can they be considered art reproductions in these days of technological struggle for high definition and maximum likelihood?
In 2021, most of the artworks of “Minimal Art History” have been minted as NFTs and can be collected via hic et nunc.
