Lil’Pix#103: Over The Top Decor

Leave it to photographer Tim Walker to take the classic painted portrait ‘Madame de Pompadour at her Tambour Frame’, 1763-4 by Francois-Ubert Drouais and blow it up to fill the walls of a room in England’s Glemham Hall.

  1. Can’t decide if I love her or she’s looming over my life too much! But a typical Walker brilliant concept. Amazing what lengths he goes to for his images. If I think about this more, I would not necessarily have the same feeling if this was a large painting — representational or abstract. Thinking of J. Singer Sargent Acheson sisters painting in the Devonshire drawing room or the Darley Boit daughters at the Boston MFA.

    1. Linda- LOL…when I first saw this shot it reminded me of the old T.V. show ‘The Land of the Giants’…:)
