Because you liked Part I...here is the newest version. Sometimes you see a pose or other characteristics of an art work that you vaguely recall seeing somewhere else. Below are images that you have seen elsewhere by another artist. Identify the both the reimagined and the original if you can.

(have fun, but please observe the no cheating rule...)

2. Ooooh, I know one! Number 3 is Julianne Moore photographed
by Peter Lindbergh. I can't remember the name/artist of the original painting, he did a small series of her recreating famous works.

27. I was thinking Lautrec too,
Could it be Egon Schiele? not the exact pose, but similar feeling.

40. I think the confusion is because Moore looks like a Klimt painting
to start with.

3. Here goes nothing:
#2 reminds me of the painting "The Annunciation" but without Mary and the angel...

#5 reminds me of the Three Graces...

No idea who painted the originals that you've shown!

19. Welcome? I've been here for years...
and my mother had a print of the original. I am a second generation fan. Very cool idea, though. Additionally, #1 reminds me of the cover of Surfer Rosa by the Pixies.

21. Nice about your mom! I love these stories about how folks knew the art.!
It's one of the big reasons I do the Challenge each week!

I don't know who the Pixies are so I can't comment. But it isn't Surfer Rosa.

Actually, I'm a bit surprised that people haven't caught on to it by now!

25. You know, that was not the one I had read was this artist's "original."
But I see that the Botticelli fits here.

Would you like to guess the original I'm referring to? Also, who is THIS artist?

I never realized how many different versions of The Three Graces there were!!

This was a fun challenge. I always learn something new. thanks for doing this.

31. #1
#1 was inspired by John Singer Sargent's "El Jaleo."

Not sure but I think #1 is a still from the movie "The Alamo." It is known that the movie's director wanted to duplicate the cantina scene depicted by Sargent.


Good to see you CTyankee! :-)

32.  btw . . .

The movie, The Alamo was directed by John Wayne. He is the director who wanted to recreate Sargent's El Jaleo!

33. Do you have a resource online about that? I know of course about the reference
but I was wondering about who wanted the scene to reference El Jaleo.

I find it hard to believe that John Wayne would even know about that painting!

I wonder how you knew about the connection of the two? What was it that you found?

36. Here are a couple of refs...
About 2/3 of the way down the page, see Roskom's reference to The Alamo scene.
http://jssgallery.org/paintings/el_jaleo.htm

Then for the connection with John Wayne, see:
http://www.4020.net/words/favourites.php#movies

A short way down the page, see the reference to Robert Hughes (who first mentioned the connection) and his 1997 book, _American Visions,
pp.250-252.

Remember that Wayne was married four times and all of his wives were Hispanic women, which may somewhat explain his exposure to and love of the Singer painting.

hope this helps...

44. correction
My error -- Wayne was married three times, (not four) and all three wives were Hispanic women.

(Also possibly of interest: the woman in red, on the far right of The Alamo tableau, is Pilar Palette Wayne, the third Mrs. Wayne.)

45. It is interesting. I am just wondering if the cinematographer didn't do this.
I am wondering, tho, about your reference to Wayne's Hispanic wife. It may be that the cinematogragher was the real person behind doing the scene that way and Pilar saw the painting and recognized the significance. I say that because Sargent wasn't exactly an artist in the Spanish oeuvre. She would have known the cultural significance, of course, but maybe not the provenance of this particular painting by an American expat in Europe, painting in Paris or London!

49. Excellent! I just saw the Monet/Lichtenstein exhibit at the MFA.
I went week before last as I knew it was closing.

It was a fine, although quite small, exhibit.
