Arts and Science: Reenacting Dutch Masters

During the boredom of corona lockdown we had plenty of time to study masterpieces of famous old Dutch painters from the 16th century as Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Breughel (the Elder). Their works inspired us to reeenact some Details taken out of their pictures. They were taken long before we learnt about similar actions like #gettymuseumchallange and others. By the way: some of those paintings are in Austrian museums… #scaartschallange. Since they were published on our social media channels we like to store them here to not be forgotten.

UPDATE: we are very proud, that the Austrian federal broadcasting company ORF awarded one of our pictures in their artschallange #dubistkunst.
