If the subjects of the world’s most iconic paintings can practice social distancing, you can too! Creatives Jeff Roy and Drake Paul brought isolation to famous paintings from da Vinci, Hopper, Munch, Wood and more, putting iconic works of art “under quarantine.”
For their project The Art of Quarantine they have applied the rules of social distancing to famous paintings stripping them of human life (or relegating figures within the originals to the background).
Here’s a selection:
Hopper’s Nighthawks are nowhere to be seen in the diner
Jesus and his disciples have abandoned the table of The Last Supper
The farmer and his wife in Wood’s American Gothic are now holed up at home, peering from the window.
Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon on La Grande Jatte is now nature only.
Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss is now forbidden
Keith Haring Actions – Art P.R.E.P. colorful figures are staying home.
The Son of Man by René Magritte is home and forgot his apple.
Even Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa decided to stay home
The Scream by Edvard Munch are coming from home
The Dance of Henri Matisse is happening safely at home.
