A Fantastic 3D Animated Video Featuring Paintings by Picasso, Dali, van Gogh and Escher

I absolutely love this video. This is a beautiful animated amalgam of four works of art produced by Marcelo Ricardo Ortiz from the Vancouver Film School. Ortiz calls his work Guernica after Pablo Picasso's masterpiece about which Lunatica posted a marvelous 3D animated rendition a while back. Featured in this video are also Vincent van Gogh's Room in Arles which was also showcased in Lunatica in two beautiful videos not long ago; Salvador Dali's The Persistence of Memory and Dutch painter M.C Escher who is famous for his gravity-defying etchings and illustrations such as Relativity which is being featured in Ortiz' fabulous work. Sit (or stand if you please) and enjoy this beautiful work.

Guernica, 1937

Relativity, 1953

Room in Arles, 1889

The Persistence of Memory, 1931
