Une semaine de ripping off Max Ernst

As promised, I thought I'd share with you a couple of the paintings I've been doing based on Max Ernst collages from Une Semaine de Bonte. They are a bit too constrained by the source image to really be 'mine', but they were fun to do. The bottom one could do with a bit more work, but I've spent as long on them as they deserve. I never did get round to re-doing the one I showed earlier.

But I quite like it how it is. . .


  1. Hi, Chris. Just started 'Tale of Terror From The Black Ship', loved 'Uncle Montague'. Hope you don't mind this random blog post!

  2. Random blog posts telling how much someone loved Uncle Montague are not any kind of problem. Thanks for getting in touch. Hope you enjoy Tales of Terror from the Black Ship.
