Living Paintings

The Hatton Gallery have been working with local Historical & Mythical Imagery Group (H&MI group) and photographer Phil Punton to recreate two paintings featured in the exhibition A Philosophy for Teaching Art: The Development of the Hatton Collection.

On Saturday 4 May we invited visitors to come along and watch the group as they explored the stories behind the paintings and photographically recreated two Old Master paintings from the Hatton’s Collection: The Lamentation and the Drunkenness of Noah, live in the gallery, with real people and props. Here are the results:

The Lamentation, after Hugo van der Goes


The Drunkenness of Noah, by Camillo Procaccini
