Photo Remake of Famous Paintings

In a contest last month, popular art blog called for submission from readers asking them to recreate classical work of art using photography. Scores of people stepped up to the challenge, restaging iconic paintings by artists like Leonardo DaVinci, Sandro Botticelli and Van Gogh. Some took great pains to create the scenes paying attention to the very last detail, while others opted to modernize the classics. Some remakes are breathtaking while others are humorous.
Here are some of my favorites.

 “The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp” by Rembrandt

 “The Two Fridas” by Frida Kahlo

 “The Calling of Saint Matthew” by Caravaggio

 “The Last Supper” by Leonardo da Vinci

“Self Portrait 1889″ by Vincent van Gogh

 “Girl reading a letter by an open window” by Vermeer

 “Grande Odalisque” by Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres

 “Liberty Leading the People” by Eugene Delacroix

 “Supper at Emmaus” by Caravaggio

 “The Girl With The Pearl Earring” by Johannes Vermeer

 “Bedroom in Arle” by Van Gogh
