Famous People Painting

Discussing the Divine Comedy with Dante

In 2006, three Chinese/Taiwanese artists, Dai Dudu, Li Tiezi, and Zhang An created an oil painting with 103 figures from world history. If you hold your cursor over a figure you see his or her name. If you click on the figure it will take you to Wikipedia where you can access the historical information.

I can imagine building an interdisciplinary unit with the arts and social studies. The painting contains artists and musicians.

  1. How fun! I’m hanging onto this post. I especially liked the folks represented by the camel. Be sure to hover over the camel and click to see the comparisons of camels to celebrities. Paris Hilton’s camel is excellent.

    Thanks Argy!
