    Holy cow! Those SF pins are awesome! They reminded me of some series of pins on my wish list, so I might add/explain their purpose for them in a bit. (I gotta survive this week of exams first.)

    Thanks for contributing everyone! Keep it up! :D

    Alright, so it's been awhile, but I did remember what I was going to post:

    Although they aren't based directly off of "classical" famous artworks, like the Mary Blair pins there are other signature "artists" pins, like this series by Allison Lefcort

    PP: 8103, 84936, 9423, 9961, 10715, 11281, 26488
    (Sorry for all the Tink. I just love the Tink. Also, there is the color variation.)

    These came in individual boxes, and she also has pins for Snow White, the Evil Queen, Cinderella, Dumbo, and Eeyore!

    What's really neat is how these are so similar to her other pieces, like this awesome painting of Jack Sparrow!

    Well.....still can't let this wonderful thread go to thread heaven yet....here's a new Picasso Pin that we missed from long ago - it was only released for a few hours in 1999!
    PP 122, yes that's 122, from the beginning of the beginning...


    [​IMG]

    Which is a take off of Picasso's Cubism period using our favorite character, Mickey Mouse.
    ' This pin is limited to an edition size of 300 and was available for only a few hours on November 12, 1999. It was created to celebrate the 24th Annual Festival of the Masters. The artist has the first pin, so there are only 299 in circulation. This pin looks like a Picasso painting of Mickey, the outside of the pin is scalloped. The colors used are orange, blue, red, white and black.'

    ^wow, that's incredible! An LE 300 from 1999.

    The search continues! (Perhaps we have to go into the past to find the newest additions to the thread!)
    ((I hope to to on a thorough search once Spring break begins))

    Alright, I did find some! Although they are not based off of masterpiece works, I found some really cool "watercolor" pins: (And they're Tinks <3 )

    Pin 46620 Tinker Bell Watercolor - Flower

    [​IMG]


    Pin 38124 Tinker Bell Spring Collection (Tink Mushroom)


    [​IMG]

    Pin 46618 Tinker Bell Watercolor - Sitting

    [​IMG]

    Pin 46619 Tinker Bell Watercolor - Flying
    [​IMG]

    Also, some of the "Hundred Days of Mickey" pins have some really interesting art on them as well!

    Pin 12403 DLR - One Hundred Mickeys Pin Series (MM 026) - Baby Mickey

    [​IMG]

    Pin 12137 DLR - One Hundred Mickeys Pin Series (MM 023) - Big Game

    [​IMG]

    Pin 15406 DLR - One Hundred Mickeys Pin Series (MM 097) - Running Underwater

    [​IMG]

    And last but not least, a pin from an Art Expo!

    Pin 36729 NYC Art Expo 2005 (Tinker Bell)

    [​IMG]

    The pin was apparently only given to art galleries and dealers, so I thought that was pretty neat!

    Wow, I am new to this board and I totally enjoyed this thread. The only one I could think of was Minnie Mouse
    as the Mona Lisa.

    Alright, so bumping this thread up since it looks like we have a few new members on the site who might have a keen eye for art, and also because I found this cool set while browsing pinpics!

    Although they aren't based off of any particular piece of art, the pins in the "Tapestry of Nations" parade pin set certainly look like they belong in a museum. (I mean, look at that detail!)

    [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    (pins 2206, 2222, 2223, 2224, 2225, 2226)

    Each pin is based off a different character in that parade, and although I can't pin down a certain style for each one, I know that there is at least some aztec influence in the art style for a couple of them. If anyone could help with maybe identifying some other art styles/cultures which were/are represented in the parade/pins that would be awesome!

    Love them all, especially the Walrus and Caterpillar in the style of Mondrian...

    The Art History thread is back! Long live the Art History Thread :)

    Oh my goodness. I *have* these pins, but I haven't gotten around to putting them in my displays yet, so I hadn't examined them closely. I never noticed their palettes! The March Hare is using a teacup of course, the Walrus is using an oyster shell, and the Hatter... I *think* it's a large and battered pocket watch, because I think I see a minute-hand. Or else it's a battered tea tray. But it's funnier to think it's the White Rabbit's old watch that the Hatter "fixed". :)

    Walrus is, yes, painting a Mondrian, Cheshire looks to be doing a Picasso maybe, March Hare could almost be doing Warhol/pop-art style, and Hatter... I dunno. Anime?

    My first thought on the Hatter's pallet was also the battered tea tray. That handle on the end led me to the conclusion, but I could totally see it if they did a pocket watch. And I agree with Mondrian, Warhol, and Picasso (although that's just because I can't think of any other abstract/modern artists that can fit the style better.) I was thinking that Alice might be in the style of Edvard Munch? He would kinda fit with the theme of these artists (they might all be considered a little mad.) Although Anime is also totally acceptable.

    :D Glad to see you're still enjoying it! I need to do some snooping to see what other goodies I can find once my exams are over.

    I thought the hatter was painting one of those creepy girls from the sixties or seventies.

    Oh! I bet it is! Like the artist that there was a movie about not too long ago...

    Edit: Oh of course, the movie was called Big Eyes. The artist was Margaret Keane. And just to bring things around full circle, the director was apparently Tim Burton. :)

    I have been pining over 45984 for YEARS.

    Edited to add: I was an art history minor in college, so most of these I want, but the 101 dalmatians pointalism one is a grail.

    A wonderful thread I have just found. I'm new to pin collecting, but not to the art world. I worked in an art museum here in Texas for nearly 30 years. The artistic nature of so many of these pins is amazing. The Alice pins are fabulous, and as a Cheshire Cat collector I would love that one. Mickey as a Picasso is on my grail list!

    Pengy, that's so awesome that you were an art history minor! And sismelis, I'm glad you like the thread! Your comment about liking the Cheshire Cat prompted a search, which brought up an art nouveau pins which I don't think we've shown here before:

    Resurfacing this older thread because I found two pins of interest!


    Pin 57883 WDW - Thomas Kinkade - Morning Star Breakfast - A New Day at the Cinderella Castle
    [​IMG]

    Pin 43351 DLR - Happiest Homecoming On Earth - Thomas Kinkade - Sleeping Beauty Castle Jumbo/Easel

    [​IMG]

    For those who aren't familiar with Thomas Kinkade, he is an american artist who does some magnificent Disney-themed paintings! I'd upload some samples but they're very large images, and there are too many to choose from. So I'd really recommend just putting in "Thomas Kinkade Disney" into google images and browsing.

    I also found this pin from DCL, and although I don't know if it's based off of any real paintings, it sure is artsy!

    I'm glad this thread got revitalized, because guess what I found on my trip to Japan, in a little secondhand collectibles shop in Nakano?

    Yep, found the whole set, in its original case and everything. :) Since it doesn't really have my favorite characters, I have it for trade. But it's definitely a nice little set!

    I couldn't remember if they had been mentioned in this thread, so I was re-reading it when I saw your post. :)

    So pleased that you found the set; and in Japan no less! What great serendipity! I also have this and they are simply amazing...a core part of my art-related collection.

    Happy, happy, happy to see the Art History thread revitalized yet again :) Thanks Purplemandms!!!

    Not sure if these count... They're not exactly "fine art" but they're art-related!
