Manneken pis ;D I love those details in the old masters.
Took me some time to find Icarus in the first painting.

Lol!  ;D
It is not Manneke Pis but Ganymede (by Rembrandt)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ganymede_%28mythology%29

Yes, it is Icarus indeed in painting #1.
Has been painted a lot of times but this is the most original one by Pieter Bruegel the Elder.

By the way, I remember that the Brazillian air company VARIG had their own magazine for customers called 'Icaro".
A bit odd I would say.

More weird quadrocopter art:
I might add the projects i add don't necessarily reflect my understanding of what is and what isn't art. Nevertheless I try to get a broad picture of works, works that I find interesting, funny, weird or disturbing. I'll stick to helicopters this week and will continue to focus on a different theme each every weak or so. The next topic will be early aviation and WW1, a period not only revolutionary for aviation but art, too.

You are invited to contribute, comment or just shake your head  :D

Bart Jansen

Proctorcopter, 2012






The Orvillecopter, 2012






Taxidermy cat, polyester casing, quad-copter

The Orvillecopter, half cat, half machine. Named after the famous aviator Orville Wright. He was killed by a car. After a period of mourning he received his propellers posthumously. [...] Soon to be flying with the birds. Oh how he loved birds. He will receive more powerful engines and larger props for his birthday. So this hopping will soon change into steady flight. For the catlovers: it is a tanned hide, just like the shoes you're wearing. For the RC lovers: it's a Lotus T580 (obviously not powerful enough, so new stuff has been ordered)

WORLD WAR I

Christopher Richard Wynne Nevinson (1889-1946), Part I
Part II LINK

Britain's Efforts and Ideals: Making Aircraft, 1917

In 1917 the Ministry of Information commissioned nine artists to produce six lithographs each on different aspects of the war effort. This is an example of one of the 'Efforts'. A further twelve artists were commissioned to produce a single image representing the 'Ideals' for which the war was fought. All the lithographs were produced in editions of 200 and the subscription price for a complete set was 100 guineas. The prospectus published on January 1, 1919 described the series as 'a first attempt by a number of British artists, working in unison, to put on record some aspects of the activities called forth by the Great War, and Ideals by which those activities were inspired. The prints were published by the Fine Art Society and produced under the direction of Ernest Jackson, himself a contributor to the 'Ideals' series.
