What’s the point?

Over the years we have featured a number of versions of well-known paintings and sculptures. They make them big, they make them small, they form them from trees and carve them out of ice. Here, following up on the recent Seurat post, is A Sunday afternoon on La Grande Jatte subjected to the full gamut of copycat and lookalikeism. Not so sure Seurat would be amused - he was very clear on the copycat / lookalike issue, “originality depends only on the character of the drawing and the vision peculiar to each artist.” Still, it’s a chance for us to show off our past achievements in this field.
