This seems like a draw thread, but there is already one going on....

Do they even have a touhou that uses painting in it's main character theme? Because I haven't seen one like that in any of the games I've played.

The real story about that real "restored", which was everything but a restoration, painting is horrifying.

God have mercy on you Europe and your Godless painting restorers/restorations.

I'm sure that when she is finished, it will look marvelous and even better than before.

>> No.9647604

Yeah, she painted over the original. She decided that she had the credentials to be an art restorer so she tried her hand at "fixing" it.

Right now real art restorers are trying to figure out if there's any way to remove her brushstrokes without damaging the original painting beneath it.

I'm not the anon you were talking to either.

A lot of idiots think the same thing as you but probably never even knew of the original painting.

That's the 21-century people for you though.

I wasn't trying to call you an idiot though anon. Just try to appreciate master pieces of art more if you can. Maybe think of what the painter is trying to convey too. Then I am sure you will see the tragedy.

That's what I've been saying. For the entire planet to know how senile one is. It's just awful to think about. And she wanted so much to fix the painting too, she really cared about it, and was really frustrated that it wasn't being restored.

She appears fairly frazzled in the video on the BBC website. She gets excited and starts yelling about how the parish priest and other parishioners knew what she was doing and they didn't stop her, so clearly she couldn't have been doing anything wrong.

I'm no art guy, but restoring paintings on flat surfaces seems pointless in the 21st century. Photographs can perfectly represent the painting at the time of being taken and they'll never degrade or get accidentally painted over. Even a good fabrication essentially represents the same picture, just drawn with a different hand on a different canvas.

well do ou know that boat riddle? the one about, if you have an old boat, and you replace it's wheel, is it the same boat? what if you then replaced it's sail, and mast, then it's cabin door and eventually every plank of wood was replaced with a new piece, is it now a new boat or is it still your same old one. well. i think that's relevant anyway

>> No.9649122

If it's a riddle, then there is an answer to it right? I don't think that has one, considering that from different points of view, there are two or maybe more possible answers.
1. You think about the concept of a boat, your boat, with different parts, but it's still yours, and this quality (and some others, like the name, etc) keep it as it is even if their parts are replaced (like the cells from the human body, for example)
2. If you think there's no material or intellectual constant between the boat you had and the one you changed, then the boat is another thing entirely, maybe even before you made all those changes (you could argue that the time factor makes the boat a completely different thing every moment, for example).
I don't know the answer, I just wanted to talk I guess.

>Photographs can perfectly represent the painting at the time of being taken and they'll never degrade or get accidentally painted over.

That's simply not true. A painting is more than just the visuals on the surface. Some works really stand out once you've seen them in real life up close, because of the texture, or the exact way the brush has touched the canvas (or a wall in this case, IIRC the jesus painting was a fresca).
A 2D photograph with today's resolution can never give you that.

I can't believe this shit has become a meme and reached Japan...

>Can someone more educated than me shed some light on this?

It's just a matter of reproducibility and worth. Something that can be indefinitely reproduced is worth shit, something that cannot be reproduced in its integrity is worth millions.
You can see Mona Lisa a lot better in a reproduced image than by going to the Louvre where it is sealed behind a 5 cm thick glass, but hey people prefere to see the one and only original...

Anyway I think there's a bit of confusion about what "restoration" of artwork actually mean. Painting over an artwork is no restoration by any means, you're not supposed to add or cover anything. You're just supposed to remove dust or other materials that might cover the original content. If there's a hole in the artwork you just leave it.

Also that Jesus seems more like a "Secco" than a "Fresco" to me. Fresco are usually more durable because the color seeps into the material for a few millimiters, and that means you can recover the painting by removing a very thin layer of the surface that might have deteriorated. "Secco" on the other hand sucks, they're bound to get ruined no matter what and they cannot be recovered in any way. In the end that Jesus was already ruined beyond recovery to begin with.

If this happened to a jewish work, it would've been hailed as a second holocaust, cultural genocide, news stations would show the outrage going across the whole world and the mossad would send out a team to kill the old lady.

If this happened to a muslim work, the media would make sure to show only what the extremist muslims think of it, with footage of manifestations all across the "arab world". Weeks later, there would be news of a suicide bombing that targeted the old lady.

But since it's a christian work, it's funny, everyone is laughing, the old lady is a hero and the media show all the funny people laughing on facebook telling you you should find it funny too.
