With Mac OS X, Apple started giving its computer operating systems unique desktop wallpapers. These images, also known as wallpapers, are available from Mac OS X 10.0 to the latest operating system (currently macOS 13 Adventure) as 5K and 6K versions at 512pixels. But if you're bored with these traditional versions of macOS wallpapers, you can find an artistic twist on the Basic Apple Guy blog. The wallpapers of Big Sur, Mountain Lion, El Capitan and Co. are offered in several individual contributions in the style of Vincent van Gogh; they were created using AI image generators.

Mac wallpapers in AI-powered "van Gogh" version for Mac, iPhone and iPad
In the latest post on the subject, which was published just yesterday under the title "macOS meets Van Gogh", you will find four different images, namely interpretations of the wallpapers of macOS 11 Big Sur, OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, macOS 10.11 El Capitan and Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. I don't know why this order was chosen. In the article you will find not only the download of the pictures in different dimensions but also some information about the selection and the artist Vincent van Gogh.
In addition to the article linked above with the four downloads provided, there are other articles with AI-modified Mac wallpapers in the "Basic Apple Guy" blog. For example, the first attempt at the Big Sur desktop background is titled “Big Starry Surshown. As the name suggests, the picture is inspired by the painting "Starry Night" by Vincent van Gogh. This version of Big Sur Wallpaper is also available for download.
More wallpapers and interesting blog posts
I just came across this blog through yesterday's post. However, a first look reveals several interesting themes. And since the site was launched in 2020, there have been multiple backgrounds for the Mac desktop and mobile home screens in addition to apps, Apple publications and photography. In addition to the AI-generated "van Gogh"-style images, you can find modern technology-inspired image downloads at Basic Apple Guy, among other things. This is all very interesting; I'll be sure to check back several times.
