Picasso’s Painting Guernica Animated in 3D

Interesting video below by the German artist Lena Gieseke; part of a project she did for a master’s thesis in computer animation, it’s a tour of Picasso’s painting Guernica, rendered in 3D. 

Here’s the original painting:


I like the video as it serves as a neat introduction to the work, helping the viewer to understand and appreciate some basics of a complicated masterpiece.  Also, it looks really cool, doesn’t it?

Trivia: Gieseke dated filmmaker Tim Burton during the years he made Batman and Batman Returns
