Are you looking for more examples? What about Snoopy (Peanuts) on his house
in front of Starry Night (VanGogh) - Met Life ad. M&Ms Dark Cholcolate also
featured a VanGogh, Munch, & one other one (hanging on my wall at school
right now - can't seem to picture it). Clear Eyes (?) using Girl with the
Pearl Earring. A few years back there was a comedian on HBO Comedy Hour who
had the entire stage/backdrop, everything painted to look like Starry Night.
I give students a candy bar who bring me in a magazine ad featuring a fine
art painting in an ad. I then purchase a cheap frame & hang them on my wall.
Keep us informed on your progress - I love this topic!
