Old Masters Reimagined with Photographs of Their Contemporary Counterparts

New York-based artist Ken Francis sees the world’s most famous landmarks differently.

Whether it’s Central Park in New York, Notre Dame in Paris or Gullfoss waterfall in Iceland, Francis applies his signature combination of photography and graphic art to give new dimensions to the images he takes during his copious travels.

“I take great inspiration from art history,” Francis told Sotheby’s, who gave the artist free rein to create original images combining the works in our Master Paintings auctions with photographs from his international adventures.

“The color palette, light, composition of landscapes and even particular brush strokes all influence how I compose and shoot my own work.” Ahead, discover Francis’s alluring takes on Sotheby’s Old Master paintings, sure to spark wanderlust and curiosity in all who view them. –Stephanie Sporn
