This is a remix of fragments of classic European paintings that have episodic animal characters in them.
I put together this digital derivative work to highlight the character of these beings that artists of previous centuries lovingly included even into official paintings. I have chosen about 130 details from primarily oil paintings that are fairly famous but the animals in them are less noticed.
The image presented here is about 1/16 of the original resolution of the print file.
The biggest problem of the project was the low resolution of the cut-outs I made from the reproduction of the web-quality full paintings. The second was the isolating background objects and placing the figures with sufficient randomness.
