#painting #ferdinand keller
Artist: Ferdinand Keller
Title: Bocklin’s Tomb
I’ve yet to find a good photograph of this painting online, the colors in this are a bit too unsaturated and something else i can’t put my finger on. “Better than nothing” would not be right since I’m not sure how much bad photography can do harm to an iconic painting, so hm.
How does artwork photography work
It is horrifically hard to do any painting justice with a photograph D:

Instead of screeching about “holy shit I thought it was a photo,” have a look at some really fantastic hyperrealism and be educated that it exists, people do it, and it’s pretty cool.
Lee Price, Roberto Bernardi, Luigi Benedicenti, Pedro Campos, Jason de Graaf, Denis Peterson, Jeremy Geddes, Gottfried Helnwein
There are many many more amazing realism artists out there. Start with Caravaggio and keep going. :)
