Categories: Culture | Social Networks

In mid-December 2017, a public "Take a picture like Rembrandt" appeared on the VKontakte social network, where they publish "cosplays on the heroes of paintings, sculptures and medieval miniatures". The author of the project is the co—founder of the community "Suffering Middle Ages" Yuri Saprykin, the idea came to him after collaborating with the Tretyakov Gallery for the project "1917". During the flash mob, the first 10-15 stylized images appeared on social networks, and then subscribers began to offer content for the community. As a rule, the authors of parodies strive to recreate all the features of the picture as accurately as possible: composition, details, color scheme and mood.
