  • About the artwork

    The edition of this photograph includes 10 copies and 5 artist proofs.
    It also exists in the format 242,5 x 180,3 cm (image) / 250 x 188 x 5 cm (framed).
    The image of the work in situation, presented here, corresponds to the large format.

    In the series "Pictures of Paper" (which includes "The Great Turf, after Dürer"), Vik Muniz scans pictures of the original artworks he wishes to reproduce, prints them out and manually cuts them out while sorting their elements by color. He pastes together these paper cutouts, disposing them in layers, and creates a voluminous pictorial surface.

    The obtained image is then photographed and blown up. The original artworks, which inspired the artist, are given a chance for a second life through this switch of the medium: these are the paintings that have been reproduced and deconstructed with the aim of making them "pictures".
