Breakfast on the Grass animation by Michael Rake

Eine murul  Breakfast on the Grass animation by Michael Rake
This is a staggering work of genius. After you watch it you’ll know what a terrible pun that was, but this is an honest to God masterpiece. The concept, the execution, every little detail. If Manet ever got to see this bizarre tribute to his work his mind would have exploded.

Watch the animation below!

    hahahaha. so funny

  • giantLittle

    I’m sorry, but I don’t understand… Please do enlighten my unknowing brain!!

    • it is the artist’s imagining of what led up to the composition of Manet’s “Luncheon on the Grass” painting, which is a funny idea in itself but to get that stumbling, staggering, slow-motion effect with these clay figures is brilliant

  • Chad

    Reminds me of college

  • magdabielecka

    The best animated movie this spring!

  • Flora Manga

    amazing!

    reminds Hannah Arendt’s description of the world,  which I know only in french as “la chancelante équivocité du monde”. I guess it could be (re)translated as “the instability of a loose world”, but I don’t really know her actual words…

  • Saravia

    I’m sorry but I cannot understand, even when Jeff Hamada explained something there.
