Poco arte clásico se versiona en 3D, con los resultados tan espectaculares que se consiguen. No lo entiendo pero mirad lo que hacen con la pintura “Bouquet in an Arched Window” de 1618.

A ground-breaking piece of digitally engineered film that takes as its subject a painting by the Dutch Golden Age master Ambrosius Bosschaert the Elder (1573–1621). Working with one of the world’s leading companies for digital visual effects, The Moving Picture Company the Carters directed an animated version of Bosschaert’s Vase With Flowers in a Window.
Every aspect of Bosschaert’s painting has been brought to life including each flower stem, insect and background scenery. The film lasts three hours and takes the painted scene from early morning darkness through to noon (where the film exactly resembles the original painting) into dusk and late night.
