Art in ads
Friday April 6, 2012
While looking at the painting Portrait d’une negresse by Marie-Guillemine Benoist I have also come across Christian Louboutin’s
advertisement where photographer Peter Lippmann reinterprets the painting –
quite faithfully and tastefully in my opinion – and he has done it for several
Advertisement has borrowed and will
continue to borrow from art in many more occasions – and not as tastefully; could
have the artists ever imagined that their work would have been reinterpreted
and used to sell goods or services? Or would they have liked the attention and
been flattered by the choice? Isn’t art - once created - of public domain?
In any case interesting and amusing to see
what it’s been made with some of the masters’ best known works – good and bad.
There is a lot more on the internet, I have only just selected a few.
Lipton Tea/Salvador Dali
knowone.de/Leonardo da Vinci
Centrum vitamins/August Rodin
Orbit/ Andy Warhol
Kraft Els AG/ Piet Mondrian
