My wife sent me these images. A Canadian filmmaker has posted a retouched image of a Bouguereau painting of the Virgin Mary — using the face on the Shroud as a guide. The results are, I think, stunning.
Image 1 is William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s1888 painting "Virgin and Child."
Image 2 is an animated gif showing how Julian Lasbliez, a Canadian filmmaker and artist, re-touched Bouguereau’s painting using the proportions of Christ’s face on the Shroud of Turin.
Image 3 is the final result.
I can’t exactly recommend any of his other work, but this is now officially my favorite image of Mary. Lasbliez originally posted the photo here: LINK
Click on the picture to get a zoomable jpeg. It is quite spectacular in larger format.
