Building on it’s already essential suite of design tools, Adobe’s recently launched Stock service integrates yet another function into the Creative Cloud. The tool builds in searchable libraries of imagery into the applications — removing the need to look for essential components of projects elsewhere. Making a case for the capabilities of Adobe Stock, the tech company challenged the international creative community to render versions of lost, stolen or damaged masterworks from artists like Frida Kahlo and Rembrandt using only stock imagery.

For digital artist and art director Jean-Charles Debroize, who participated in the Make a Masterpiece project, the test was to recreate Caravaggio’s Saint Matthew and the Angel, which was destroyed during World War II in Berlin. The process was complicated, taking over three weeks to search for more than 140 individual pieces of imagery. But, the final outcome was a faithful representation of the lost painting and demonstrates the possibilities of stock imagery in the hands of creatives.

Let us know what you think of his final recreation below and look for the flip book in HYPEBEAST Magazine 16 to see Debroize’s process happen step-by-step.
