Remakes of Famous Paintings

 We all probably know these beloved Western art masterpieces, but not like this! Here are a few great examples of famous paintings that have been reproduced creatively by a few very creative art lovers with photo cameras.


“The Girl With The Pearl Earring” by Johannes Vermeer

According to the competition’s requirements, none of the images could be Photoshopped – “all the work here happens before you take the photo, rather than afterward.”   8-12.2

“Self Portrait 1889″ by Vincent van Gogh

However, they all follow the same rules – re-create classic art without using digital effects. The coolest thing is that they feature various levels of interpretation – some people went for picture-perfect representations, while others opted to focus more on the general themes that the original artwork represents, or to present the same idea or scene in a modern light.   .   8-123
