Bouguereau Comes Alive in China – In 3D


Sit back and enjoy the heavenly melody: a boy poses with a 3D painting at the exhibition in Hangzhou

In the summer of 2012, an exhibition in Hangzhou, China encouraged visitors to interact with a display of incredible 3D artworks. The 2012 Magic Art Special Exhibition Of China was held at the Hangzhou Peace International Exhibition and Conference Centre. Gallery goers could up close and personal with the artworks as dinosaurs burst out of doors, fierce sea creatures swim out of the ocean waves and boxes tumble from precarious bicycles.

One of the exhibits was the Remastered Bouguereau shown above. It shows one of the angels in Bouguereau’s 1881 painting La Vierge aux Anges (The Virgin with Angels). Below you can see which part of the painting is used. Click the first image to visit the gallery where you will find over twenty modern versions of Bouguereau’s painting. Click the second to view more 3D artworks at the exhibition.
