6 DohVinci Interpretations of Classic Works of Art
August is Art Appreciation Month. If you don't have the time to head out to your local museum, don't worry: the artistic wizards at Hasbro came up with a great alternative. They recreated several famous works of art out of DohVinci, a variation of Play-Doh.
1. The Scream
Edvard Munch created four versions of The Scream between 1893 and 1910. While this version isn't a Munch original, it would certainly fit right into the collection.
2. A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte
This iconic work was completed by Georges Seurat in 1886. It's considered one of the most famous examples of pointillism, and took the DohVinci artists more than 60 hours to recreate. (That's still better than the two years it originally took Seurat!)
3. The Starry Night
Vincent van Gogh's contributions to the art world weren't recognized during his lifetime, so he never got to know how influential his works would become. But if he had, he probably still wouldn't have believed that someone would one day recreating his most famous masterpiece out of DohVinci.
4. The Sunflower
One underappreciated van Gogh work is his series on sunflowers. Done in van Gogh's style, this DohVinci piece pays homage to the flower he loved so much.
5. Girl with A Pearl Earring
It's estimated that Johannes Vermeer completed this painting sometime around 1665. Three and a half centuries later, the DohVinci artists celebrate how timeless the portrait really is.
6. Mona Lisa
Leonardo da Vinci created what has been called "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world" when he painted the Mona Lisa sometime in the early 16th century. The DohVinci team put its own spin on it with bright colors and much more defined eyebrows.
