RECREATING THE FAMOUS PORTRAIT OF VINCENT VAN GOGH

by Miryam Muller in


Lithuanian photographer Tadao Cern recreated the famous portrait of Vincent Van Gogh in photography (with a random stranger). The resemblance is striking! Watch video comparison of the two below.

From the artist: Revealing The Truth:

Long long time ago a stranger asked me to make his portrait… So I did. I sent him the image and I never heard back from him again since that moment. Then I saw one painting and I felt that it was very familiar to me and then I got it – It was a copy of my photo! I did a little research on that and it seemed that the guy who drew it(copied it) is quite well known… His name is Vincent Van Gogh and I was lucky enough to make his portrait. Pity that he never mentioned me and I can’t find his contact now… This video is a comparison of both images. More information at www.tadaocern.com
