The Harvesters | Masterpiece Digital Print

 There are many masterpieces of art in the world but a few have risen to iconic stature.  Most everyone knows them from reproductions, but the paintings’ images are also printed on coffee mugs, calendars, mouse pads, greeting cards and shampoo bottles.  Do these paintings fail to surprise us anymore?  Are there new ways of discovering what we love about them?

I have studied these masterpieces and put my own spin on them.  I have followed the rhythm of the colors as they play across the canvas and then abstracted them into stripes of varying widths.  I then blur them into an ombré so that the colors melt into each other.  When I look at them the ghost of the original painting peeks out and makes me love the work afresh.

The Harvesters ombré digital print measures 36″ by 48″

The Harvesters is one of a series of six paintings by Pieter Bruegel the Elder depicting the six times of the year. He painted it in 1565. The painting shows peasants harvesting wheat and also eating, collecting pears and dozing. The detail and humanity is astounding. It is considered the “first modern landscape” by the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
