Seurat's Sunday Afternoon

Wow. These folks took the time to restage George Seurat's “Sunday Afternoon on the Island of LaGrande Jatte.” It looks really great. See more about it here:

I'm impressed by the amount of organization this must have taken, right down to the sailboat and the black dog. But what, couldn't they find a monkey? (See the monkey in the original at the feet of the woman with the umbrella?) People just don't pay attention to detail like they once did.

Once again, I found this via the blog of blogs, Heading East (http://www.mexicanpictures.com/headingeast/). I have to give Mr. Gutierrez his due props (or is that his "props due" ?)

    Pretty incredible re-creation! I'd like to see Van Gogh's "Bedroom", or something by Modigliani with all those long faces!

  2. We tried to re-create Van Gogh's self-portrait with the um, bandaged ear here at the house, but we chickened out!
