Four Famous Paintings

Which famous painting would you like to see come to life?

We are making a series of four comic (but affectionate) sketches based on a series of famous paintings. We have so far completed Mona Lisa (Leonardo da Vinci), American Gothic (Grant Wood) and we are just casting A Girl with a Pearl Earring (Johannes Vermeer). We are, however undecided as to the fourth. We are very tempted to choose a Pre-Raphaelite painting and the Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood are running a story for us to see which paintings their readers would like to see brought to life.

Any ideas?


Leonardo da Vinci – Jack Greene, Mona Lisa – Lydia Staniaszek

    Anne Boleyn or Christina of Denmark! Although I wasn’t a massive fan of the Tudors post Anne B, I did love the scene where Christina politely but sharply rebuts the English Ambassadors praises of Henry VIII as a husband. Even if the costumer had put her in the most god-awful necklace I’ve ever seen.

    Hi Claire – interesting ideas!

    How did you get on with the gable hood?

    Any of John William Godward’s paintings are absolutely gorgeous. His models tend to wear beautiful dresses, some a bit sheer (giggle), but take a look at his classical ladies:

    Hopefully you’ll be as inspired as I am!
