Manet, Munch and my Photos on the web

Sometimes, when surfing the net, I am being surprised of the possible links that may occur. Tonight I was looking at details in Edouard Manet´s painting Picnic on Grass when my blogpost from June 4th 2008 came up among many others. I had called the photo Breakfast in the Garden, and Google found the link. Another expression of Manet´s original painting from 1863 is one of Picasso´s versions. You are free to choose what you like best.
An interesting link can also be found between images of Edvard Munch´s The Scream and my wife when preparing salad for our Summer dinner.
I have got her permission to present the photo without further comments.
However, the reason for my searching for details in "Picnic on the Grass", was the above painting "If not Summer no.3" which I found in this article in WIRED Underwire.
The excerpt below can be found in the image above created by two artists Simmons & Burke, who googled the web, scoured fan forums and browsed Flickr accounts to round up 5,000 images for a single collage.
If you find the detail (should not be difficult) return to the first image and try to find the frog in the painting by Manet.
Learn to love art.

Interessant sammenstilling av bilder. Blir aldri kjedelig her hos deg, Arne, men så har du jo heller ikke strikkeoppskrifter på bloggen din.
