Peter Last, a picture frame dealer in Bristol, and Daniel Hadden, an art dealer in East Sussex, have been recreating well-known pictures by dressing up at home every Friday. They launched the posts in September 2017 when they began photographing a frame with an alcoholic beverage and named it #alcoholandframes.
But since lockdown the posts have extended to full recreations with alcohol and frames.
A number of high-profile museums have run similar projects during lockdown asking the public to pose as famous artworks including The Getty Center, in Los Angeles, and its GettyMuseumChallenge.
But Hadden and Last believe they started the trend. They have been pleased with the response but may end the dressing up when the lockdown eases.
One fan, Patrick Devlin, wrote in to ATG: “I know a lot of people who look forward to each week’s offering including myself. During lockdown they have taken things to the next level recreating classic artworks with beautiful and hilarious results.”
