  • Are the art pieces featured in Don't Eat the Pictures worthy of having articles for? I know at least a couple we already have, as they're referenced elsewhere, but I'm figuring that since certain pieces were deliberately chosen, they should be mentioned somewhere here (either as the artwork or the artist).

    Thoughts?

    • Absolutely. We should cover them by artist.

    • Yeah, I think lack of screengrabs and/or identifications (any identified on-screen, that should be specified) is the only reason they hadn't been done.

      If anything falls into the artist unknown category, then by title (we've already done that for a couple of Greco-Roman pieces).

    • Sounds good to me. I'll see what I can create.

      Maybe, I could screengrab as much work as possible and gallery it here and we can pick them out as we ID them.

    • Are you screengrabbing from the commercial DVD? I can dig my copy out if need be.

        Loading editor
    • No, it's from a VHS copy I just got.

    • The Met also has this: a search of their entire collection, which may not be all that helpful since there's almost half a million pieces in there.

    • Here's some of the works (pretty much everything that is shown with the characters interacting with them, aside from anything featured in "Broken and Beautiful" or "Mothers and Children"):

    • I'm headed to bed shortly, but I'll get some DVD upgrades to those tomorrow prolly.

    • And here's the works seen in "Mothers and Children":

    • Oops, I meant to get some DVD upgrades for these. Got distracted, as usual.

    • Something useful - Google's "Search by image" feature, which just helped me find a couple of these (and presumably more if anyone wants to try).

    • I found a lot for Episode 211: The Muppet Museum of Art that way.

    • Also, I just dug up my DEtP DVD and it looks like your screenshots are nearly indistinguishable from what I'd be able to get. But let me know if you think some need an upgrade and I'll take a look.

    • Oh, I also got a DVD copy, so that's where they've come from now.

      Maybe you could spruce up the light / color? The DVD quality is pretty clean, but dull.

        Loading editor
    • Sure. Once we've identified them all, it would be neat to caption them all in a gallery on the Don't Eat the Pictures article similar to this.

      Just increase the saturation in Photoshop (or whatever you use).

        Loading editor
    • The saturation's mostly fine; maybe increase a tick. It's mostly levels and shadows, with a touch of clarity and noise reduction. It's too bad no one's ever going to spend money on these things to properly transfer them. The source probably isn't the finest tape stock, but something tells me this special could look better than the DVD we got.
