As Marat might have said! While looking up info about Van Gogh’s portrait of his mother (Zoe Keenan’s third drawing was of this portrait) when I came across a delightful site of Photoshopped artworks.
This was entitled “Blind man fooled to poke a dead dude up the nose” and it was claimed to be a co-work-of-art between Caravaggio and Jacques-Louis David. In fact it was an entry in a Photoshop competition run by FreakingNews.com. This particular contest invited people to submit combined paintings. I’m only showing a few of the entries. Check out the site for others.
Finally a collaboration between Degas and Monet!
There are several other Photoshop competitions based on art and artists. One speculates on what Vincent van Gogh might be painting nowadays:
While another is concerned about stolen art works – including people and things going missing from the art works themselves. This one based on an Edward Hopper painting is called “A Slow Night in Nighthawks Bar”.
There are lots more on the website. What I hadn’t realised until researching the links to the ‘original’ works was how many parodies and pastiches there are of famous paintings. I think I’ll dig around and see what I can find!
