I have to "recreate" a Renaissance painting with a 21st century theme. Any suggestions on what direction I should go? We can use photoshop to alter our pictures. Basically a modern touch to an old renaissance picture. We can use any props or people to recreate the image.
One piece of Renaissance artwork that would lend itself to this type of project is "The Wedding at Cana," by Veronese, which was completed in 1553. The painting depicts a wedding banquet. After examining the image of the picture, you could create an image of a contemporary wedding which would include many of the same artifacts found in the original work: wine, food, wedding guests feasting, musicians playing, and attention to the smallest detail which is very similar to what brides and grooms expect at a wedding today.
Another idea would be to recreate a picture of one of the English monarchs such as Queen Elizabeth I. British royalty remain important both, politically and in pop-culture. This would be especially timely as Queen Elizabeth II becomes the longest reigning British monarch in history on September 9, 2015
