Classic paintings are part of the epitome of culture. They are dazzling and they can make us feel strong emotions without having to say a word. Paintings can be expensive because they hold significant cultural value.
Likewise, recreating these classic artworks can be a fun time that honors both the artist and the work itself. Check out 15 paintings recreated with the help of various people.
The project started about five years ago when Lucie Kruta thought of a unique way to capture the growth of her children.
Lucie Kruta realized that she could have her children participate in recreating famous artworks.
She admitted that the first photo taken was simply an accident that sparked an idea.
Her newborn daughter was wearing a beautiful dress when Lucie noticed that she looked like someone from a painting of Eduard Manet.
Since then, Lucie started to recreate various paintings with the help of her children and her friends.
After five years, her series of photos became quite a big collection.
Now, she has over 280 impersonations of some of the best artworks in history.
