P1170109 377x251 The Picnic

This is my version of the Edouard Manet painting The Picnic. I first became aware of the painting when I saw the Brian Griffin version which he shot for the Bow Wow Wow single ‘Go Wild in The Country’ in the early eighties. There are so many examples of pop culture leading unsuspecting teens to classical art. At the time when the reference was explained to me a 16 year old school boy I was amazed of course i had to find out more. My version arrived in London yesterday in a crate of work shipped back from Israel.
