Manet 2013 - 31 picturesAdvanced Photoshop Contest - 31 high resolution image entries
Today (January 23) is the 181st birthday of Edouard Manet. He originally wanted to join the French navy but failed the exams twice, and turned to art. So, in all honesty, we have to thank the French navy for giving the world the artist who became one of the founding fathers of impressionism and realism art movements. Manet trained in the studio of Thomas Couture - a hugely popular French history painter at the time. Before Manet developed his famous impressionist style, he spent two years in the Louvre where he trained and copied the old masters.
Photoshop any painting by Edouard Manet to include some modern elements in it. Think of product placements, celebrities, modern architecture, and even sci-fi features, etc. and show how Manet paintings would be different if he painted them in the modern days. Note: If you use any of Manet's paintings with "bare subjects" (e.g. "The Luncheon on the Grass" or "Olympia"), please cover them up with bikini before submitting.
