More than a century after the death of the 19th-century Italian Renaissance painter Diego Rivera, his iconic work is being immortalised in online versions that are free to download and share.
Michelangelo’s David is among the most sought-after paintings in the world, a portrait of the artist and his wife, Giambattista Basile, who painted it in 1634.
While the original work was sold in 1885 to a private collector, the painting is available for free on the internet, for those who are keen to explore the artwork’s history.
The original painting was bought in 2014 for $1 million and is currently for sale on eBay.
Artist Pablo Picasso’s 1848 “La Boheme” is the most popular work of his and sold for $8 million in 2011.
It is believed to have been painted in the 1820s, with the artist claiming he received it as a gift from the painter’s mother.
Pablo Picasso painted “La Bocheme” in the year of his death, 1847.
Picasso is believed, by some, to have painted it before his death.
After the artist’s death, the work went to private hands and was sold for about $3 million.
Painting online is not limited to a single painting, but rather can be used to create a wider range of artworks.
Digital painting is a new art form that allows the creation of abstract artworks with the power to be shared across the internet.
According to the National Museum of Australia, there are more than a million people in Australia using the technology to create artworks, while another 2,000 Australians are involved in the art industry in a “work for hire” role.
In recent years, there have been attempts to re-create the artwork, with a series of online paintings being released in the United States, including the one that has recently been auctioned off for $2 million.
It is believed the painting was the work of Italian artist Giacomo Mazzini.
“It is a great pleasure to work on a painting that is as good as Mazzino’s masterpiece,” Mr Kuzniewski said.
“I am also thrilled to be able to use it in my projects and it is an example of the power of the internet and the power that artists have in the digital age.
But it is a lot more than art, it is also a way of life and as a painter you need to look at the world around you, how it looks to you, what it means, and to be creative.”
