Talking Paintings featured in an Interactive Exhibit in Guangzhou
Among the 19 exhibits are Mona Lisa and The Source. Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa says “The fact is that I am not smiling at all. I don’t think the reason is important, as long as you love the way I look.”
Another masterpiece, “The Source”, which was done by French artist Ingres in 1856, explains what has inspired the painter. “Raise and curl your right arm, make sure your elbow is higher than your head. But I feel like losing my balance. Your pure beauty has reminded me of the source of a fountain. You can carry a pot on your left shoulder. That’s it.” It took Ingres almost thirty years to complete the painting.
The Interactive Exhibition of the World’s Masterpieces which runs until January 22, 2011, has successfully merged historic art with the state-of-the-art 3D technology.
