Mort du Marat by Sniperphotog

Photographic Prints


Based on the painting by Jacques Louis David.
One of my favourite pieces of art.

This is actually an old shot – but I don’t know why I never added it on here, just noticed that it wasn’t in my portfolio.

    Well when I saw the thumbnail it really looked like the original Jacques-Louis David painting. I didn’t know what I was going to see when I clicked on it. It was an enormous surprise to see your barbie creature. You kind of “tricked” me, that’s why I said you are terrible.
    Also because your work is not even ashamed to satirize such an established painting. It’s just great, that’s the point of creating.
    Now if you google “mort du marat”, your barbie version comes on the first place! This makes me laugh almost as much as your image.

    By the way, in French “terrible” also means “great” in everyday language.

  • Oh ok – I getcha ;)
    .. I was going to be all petulant and say, ‘But I LIKE this one… Barbie din’t even kill no one in this one…’
    Thanks :)
