The Frick’s High-Tech, Old Master Remix: A digital artwork in an unexpected setting brings a classic still life to life

This is an article on ARTnews. “Yesterday, an immaculate replica of Ambrosius Bosschaert’s Vase with Flowers in a Window(ca. 1618) appeared to come alive at the Frick Collection. Like a talking painting from Harry Potter, the flowers swayed with the wind and the daylight in the background grew brighter as time passed. Morning dew on the flowers evaporated. The water level in the vase slowly diminished. A snail in the lower-right corner of the composition emerged from his shell and leisurely inched his way out of the frame.”

I’m so happy to see this happen within the content of traditional artwork and still-lifes. I think its great because its a modern way of paying homage to our masters that essentially are the reasons we have any type of inspired imagery in this world at all.

    This is very interesting! To see the still pictures turning into moving pictures, like a cartoon. Even the “still-life painting” is no longer still.

    But I do have doubts, when we are looking at the original painting, we know it’s a painting, and it looks still and classic, you can see the approach how artist painted it, the lines and strokes. But when it’s turning into something like animation, we may consider it as an animation, but as it’s not quite changeable and has a plot or something like that, I actually think it may look quite boring.

    Have no idea am I addressing this clear. I guess I prefer the still still-life.
