ART IS DEAD

JANUARY 2011

The first salon of the season, exploring death scenes in classic paintings with contemporary twists.

St John the Baptist (alive with sheep and with Salome holding his head on a plate post-execution):

Ophelia (a little soggy pre and post drowning):

and the Death of Chatterton:

Here are some lovely sketchers and the artwork they created in one deadly evening:
