Illustration Friday's : "Homage"...Manet and Radiohead

This is the original by Eduart Manet. I saw it recently at The Getty Center in Los Angeles. This is by far one of the most beautiful paintings I have ever seen. It's called: The Bar at the Folies Bergere"


and this song....is touching in and of itself....this is "No surprises" by Radiohead


This piece came about by the influences of both: Manet and Radiohead...This piece is titled "No Surprises", just like the Radiohead song above....Enjoy....
