Picasso enlarged

Picasso 1

Picasso 2

Picasso 3

This was part of a challenge in a Belgian tv show “Fata Morgana”. The challenge was to recreate 5 famous paintings but with large dimensions. One of these five was Picasso‘s “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon“. All I know about the dimensions is that the height of this reproduction was 5.5 meters (18 feet). I also remember they were going to sell this for a good cause but that idea got lost somewhere. Too bad really, my living room has a high ceiling.

I don’t think this one is a reproduction from a famous painting in art history, but I could be wrong.

Joseph Murawski – Stolen Colour

Joseph Murawski

Not really a painting of the day for now as I’m getting more and more interested in seeing the passion and craftsmanship of the artists in question. The artist is Joseph Murawski and the painting he’s working on is called Stolen Colour. And surprisingly enough there’s also Joseph Murawski’s website.

Raft of the Medusa

Raft of the Medusa

This installation was an open air art project as a tribute to The Raft of The Medusa by Théodore Géricault. Don’t bother trying to look for it, as it originates from 1984 and only lasted for a couple of hours due to heavy winds. And there’s also a Lego reproduction of this painting.

Thx to user Enno de Kroon on Flickr for sharing this.

Art Car

So which artists do you recognize ?

I see Grant Wood’s American Gothic, Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, a Mondrian painting, some dancers by Degas (not sure about the colour palette though).
