19 Creative Remakes Of Classical Paintings

Published 10 years ago

Following the tradition of famous classical artists can be important, but reinterpreting their work in the modern era can also yield great results. Most of this series of famous paintings recreated as photographs started when booooom.com partnered with Adobe for their Remake project, inviting U.K. students to send in remakes without digitally manipulating their images. The example set by their delightful submissions spread through the Internet, prompting everything from realistic photo duplicates of classical paintings to really funny low-budget interpretations, all of which captured the basic visual themes of the masterpieces they imitated.

Here’s a selection of 19 of the best remakes created without using Photoshop or any other post-production retouching (except for Tadas Černiauskas’ remake of van Gogh’s “Self Portrait 1889″).
