    But posting is so much more fun than working on finals purplemandms!
    (I say as I finish up my own paperwritting for the night)

    I don't like Mickey but I will always stare longingly at this pin because I am obsessed with Rene Magritte, I've done a ridiculous amount of projects on him

    He had a complex about showing faces in his work because he watched his mother being dragged out of the river as a child after committing suicide. Her face was covered by her nightgown when they pulled her out. Despite that he turned out okay, and went on to be a famous painter after having a long stint of designing wallpapers.

    I know it's totally a coincidence but I can't think of this hidden mickey without connecting it to the painting. They don't have the same meaning at all but my mind works in weird ways sometimes.

    I think these are the only 2 I have. Both are based on Norman Rockwell paintings.

    Gotta love norman Rockwell!

    And I love the connection with the "this is not a pin" pin! I never would have thought of that.

    Thanks for contributing!

    I had the full set of this (in box) for a while! I adore Degas in particular (I used to be a dancer when I was young) but it didn't fit my collection, really, so I eventually traded it away (whole set intact; I think I bid it in a DPF auction.)

    That would be amazing but can you image the wild fire and skyrocketing cost for those?

    Fun fact that many people don't know:

    The swing has been used for almost every Disney princess. It's only now famous because people saw it in the art book for Tangled and freaked out because it was reused in Frozen. The artist that did the one in the movie and this Tangled one is Lisa Keene. Before her Glen Keane had done one for Ariel and Belle too, and it's actually on of their personal projects for Disney, but the Tangled one was the first one to be shown as a piece of concept art.

    This was original concept art for Belle

    Fantastic Thread; good enough to get this very old timer and mostly lurker posting again! So happy to see some faces I recognize from Dizpins adding to the thread! So, admit I'm also an art fanatic; the pins that were Disney remakes of artwork is what made me advance from 'pin-interested' to pin addicted well over 10 years ago. I was lucky enough to have collected the entire original Disney Auction Masterpiece group, and the boxed Tokyo Disney Sea set (see PP 13442). All of these are amazing pins, although much physically smaller than the original DA Masterpieces. In terms of event pins, agree that Pintiquities was the place to be and we really enjoyed that event as well as the amazingly high quality Pintiquities pins (see PP68516 -68524) and the set PP68924, with four different artists 'versions' of Figment. I love this set! Also have the later set from Disney Auctions that included Donald The Scream and Jessica as Birth of Venus. Like the original Masterpiece pins, be aware that there are reports of counterfeits. The Art Nouveau set pins are also SO beautiful. Some pins to add to the discussion are: 31769 Mona Lisa Stitch, PP61285 -61291, a great tongue in cheek take off of Roy Lichtenstein 'Female Ideas' graphic art, PP69256, Ariel in a take off an a famous art nouveau poster. Then there are the DLRP PinArt event pins PP70508 - 70511 - all of these are amazingly high quality pins, similar to the Pintiquities event pins. And, while I don't live in NYC, I'm there regularly for both business and pleasure and have been a member of the Metropolitan Museum of Art for more than 20 years. Art Lovers Unite :)

    Sorry for not replying sooner. I keep forgetting to check up on this thread, but ah! Thank you for contributing! (And yay a fellow Tink lover!) I'm checking out these pins now and they're really gorgeous! I didn't know about the PinArt event pins.

    Oh! And as I don't think that anyone has mentioned it on here yet, there's also an entire series of "sketch" pins like the Animation Art mystery collection. Those are pretty neat too! And it's great, because those pins aren't LE like so many of the other art pins are.

    This is a great set! I especially love the van Gogh Figment based on the artist's self portrait:

    [​IMG]

    WDI also released a 5 pin Figment series recreating famous works of art:

    American Gothic

    Love, love, loooooooooove Figment's expression in this one. Even the pitchfork-pattern on Dreamfinder's overalls is there! Probably my favourite of the bunch!

    That Belle pin is the first thing that popped into my head when I saw this thread. I've come to terms I will probably never own her (I'm pretty sure she's worth $300+, right?), but I truly think it is one of the prettiest pins I've ever seen. (Doesn't hurt that I'm a bookworm and Belle is my favorite princess.) I'm very jealous that you actually own her! Can I come by one day and just ogle your collection and drool? ;)

    Pretty sure this is the only pin I own based off a piece of famous artwork...

    Wow! That brings us up to a total of three renditions of American Gothic! (The Jessica and Rabbit, the Ariel and Triton, and then this one. But I admit this one is probably my favorite.) And that Van Gogh <3 <3 <3 I had the fortune to see his self-portrait in-person, and oh it was stunning!

    I honestly wish I could bring my oil paints and canvases back up to campus with me, because I would probably be giving it a go at some of these Disney renditions in the pins!

    @Sorapandora, that pin works so well with the original work! I like how it's not in a frame or anything special like that which would hint that it is based off a painting.

    We also have Edgar Degas' ballerina statue showcased at the St Louis Art Mueseum. Further north, I have seen two paintings at the Chicago Art Instiute, Grant Wood's American Gothic(very small painting) and Georges Seurat's Large Masterpiece: A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.
    Georges_Seurat_-_Un_dimanche_après-midi_à_l'Île_de_la_Grande_Jatte.jpg

    There are at least two pins based on the latter. What I like is that the first pin is that it is essentially a play on the artist's style of pointillism, usage of dots rather than long brush strokes to invoke the image on the canvas; the real work is a massive 2x3 meters so it is like seeing a digital photograph with the pixels up close. The last pin is cool but I wish they would've incorporated the entire painting rather then just the three figures on stage left...

    As a huge Sunday/Seurat fan, happily there's another pin of it too from a Japan art series:

    [​IMG]

    Pin 7113: Tokyo Disney Sea Framed Art Donald and Daisy in Seurat Painting


    This series also includes a pin of the Fragonard Swing:

    Pin 9902: Tokyo Disney Sea Framed Art Lady & Tramp in Fragonard Painting

    As well as these:

    This was one of the earliest art series of pins, so a lot of newer collectors are likely unaware of them. One of the sad things about those who remember the earlier pins and have disappeared from the hobby is that older wonderful pins get forgotten about... :(

    And I'm an old timer and I don't think I ever knew about that set! This is the real loss of losing Pin Groups. It would be a great subject to pull all these fine-art inspired pins together in a group. Then if someone stumbled across one of the princess-based Masterpiece pins, they could see the link and potentially click the link, and discover pins they never knew about. Now, there is very little way people can discover what they don't already know about.

    That's why it's important to keep up posts like this. Sharing knowledge/expertise/collections and communicating are vital. And those are some pretty cool pins above! Thanks!

    Completely agree! Hopefully the new databases will add pin groups. I loved being able to check those out when they were kept up to date!
