famous paintings animated

Monday, August 1st, 2011

Some 20 years ago Maarten Koopman made an awarded series of animated shorts showing the ‘making of’ famous paintings. For ‘The Bedroom’ by Vincent Van Gogh, he even won the Special Jury Prize, at the Film festival Cannes in 1990.

Salvador Dali and Walt Disney – Destino

Monday, October 26th, 2009

Destino is a short animated cartoon released in 2003 by The Walt Disney Company. Destino is unique in that its production originally began in 1945, 58 years before its eventual completion. The project was a collaboration between American animator Walt Disney and Spanish painter Salvador Dalí, and features music written by Mexican songwriter Armando Dominguez. It seems an unlikely cooperation and/or friendship, but it happened nonetheless.

Ugly Warhol ?

Sunday, October 25th, 2009

No, not another essay on whether to love or hate Andy Warhols paintings, just a glimpse into his personality:

In fact, the tragic truth was that Andy believed that he was ugly. Even as he drew and took pictures of these people that he called gorgeous, even as he said, “Everyone is beautiful, it’s just that some are more beautiful than others”, he thought himself to be ugly. Perhaps as these “beautiful” people sought security in Andy’s studio, Andy also sought security in his art featuring these beautiful people. But as someone who became one of the most famous and recognizable artists of all time, what would Andy have to be insecure about?

Jan Vermeer

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

As there is so many incredible art out there, we at Artinthepicture.com are continually striving for more images from more artists. However recently we have been notified by a reader that the images from Jan Vermeer’s paintings we had, were far “too yellow”.

After a bit of browsing through some art books, it was crystal clear that the man had a valid point. The images on Artinthepicture.com were uninspiring and even degrading the work of Vermeer. Since then we have made a slight switch and are hoping to improve the quality, colors and resolution of our images in an effort to give you a “museum quality” experience.

As a first step, let me present you with the new Jan Vermeer Art Gallery:

Banksy vs Bristol Museum

Wednesday, August 19th, 2009

Banksy (official site) is without a doubt the best known and most important street/graffiti artist in the world. In his new show, in his supposed hometown Bristol, he takes on the Bristol Museum, and wins.

Every so often, art breaks out of its confines to become an event. People who would never normally go to a gallery do so; they feel part of it when they would otherwise feel excluded. The last time this happened was when Olafur Eliasson put a giant sun and a mirrored ceiling in Tate Modern and teenagers rolled around on the ground making shapes they could see reflected in the roof.

And it’s happening now at Banksy versus Bristol Museum, the exhibition the elusive graffiti artist suddenly unveiled last week, in which he has his “remixed” the museum’s own collection by putting more than 100 of his own artworks among it – by far the largest Banksy show to date, of work mostly never shown in the UK before.

For the event of this show, Banksy has also released a new limited edition screenprint. The print is available in two different ‘flavours’: strawberry and chocolate. Thanks to our contacts we are able to offer you these sold-out prints in our shop: Banksy Strawberry Donut and Banksy Chocolate Donut.

Above is one of his Rubikcubism artworks that he has also created into a limited edition print for a recent art show. It depicts, ofcourse, the famous Beatles album cover Abbey Road. You can buy Invader – Abbey Road print in our webshop.
