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.

Jan Vermeer

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:
