Fabrizio Riccardi - Paintings Of Pantagruel

Fabrizio's detailed paintings bring a strangely realistic life to the original woodcuts from nearly half a millennium ago. I drove myself insane trying to match up many of these paintings to the originals and I've numbered them in a way so that you can match most of them up. For example, Fabrizio's 39th Pantagruel matches up to the original woodcut by Franquis numbered 39. This will only work through number 55 as I was no longer able to match up the remaining 15 some paintings, likely from the assortment of 20 original woodcuts that I've not included. I'll come back to this later and try to match them all up after posting the remaining woodcuts.
Fabrizio's website can be found here.

you didn't promise to much, aeron. while dali's variations are good, but ultimately don't add much to the originals, these are something else entirely. great art & great post!

Thank you all, and Fufu, look again, I've added another 50 some paintings since last night. They certainly give a peculiar life to those old woodcuts.
