7/17/2006: Live recreation of famous Seurat painting



Boing Boing'd and then sent along by axlrosen, thanks!

"Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" is the English name of it, and surely you've seen it; it's the prime example of pointilism, the technique Seurat came up with. You know, where the image is created by thousands and thousands of tiny dots. The technique copied in most types of photo reproduction and laser and dot-matrix printing.

If nowhere else, you've seen it studied by Cameron in "Ferris Beuller's Day Off", since it lives in the Arts Institute in Chicago, Chicago being the city in which Beuller took his day.

Beloit, WI decided to take a shot at recreating it.

The original:



Boing Boing also pointed out that at this page, if you click on tableaux-vivants, there are similar recreations. Mostly of lesser quality, but still fun.

a very cool Sunday in the park with George.



mlandman  Monday Jul 17 11:35 AM

hey!

Where's the little dog!

And the monkey!

Could have done better.

Very inappropriate usage of nasty older ladies as opposed to the hot younger ones (albeit with enormous asses).

Disappointed.

you can't have everything. Plus, enormous asses=bustles.

Still, I like-y. 'Course, am crass American without taste.

The dog did a great job!

I was wondering what they put in the grass to get him so perfectly snout-on.



mlandman  Monday Jul 17 12:19 PM

won't be complete until

It won't be complete until Cameron stares at the picture for a half hour, focusing on the little girl. I'll never forget that scene.

Dammit, I need to swing by the video store on the way back home.

If you like this, watch What Dreams May Come - and then watch when the credits roll for the historical art images that were referenced.

Ah, the good old days. Now top hats and bustles have been replaced by baseball caps, shorts, and mandles. What has this world come to? Perhaps, instead of pondering his insignificant place in the world, Cameron was simply longing to swap his hockey jersey for a top hat and coat.

Is that what Cam was doing? Damn I had it wrong.....I thought he was trying to figure out how to get into Mia Sara's pants, and only pretending to look at the picture. I know that's what I was thinking.

Now if someone would only do a recreation of "The Scream"



wait that was Home Alone.



Elspode  Monday Jul 17 09:59 PM

You should have been in my office with a camera around 5:45 this evening.

I cut out this ad once from a Dutch magazine - it's a recreation of Van Gogh's "de Aardappeleters" ("The Potato Eaters") .

And there's Annie Leibovitz's recreation of Botticelli's "Birth of Venus" for AmEx, with Marianne Saegebrecht as Venus.
