In W magazine, April 2010 issue, photographer Tim Walker brings his favorite paintings to life. Here: François-Hubert Drouais’s 18th-century portrait of Madame de Pompadour at Her Tambour Frame, (1763–64)  super-sized to fill the walls of England’s Glemham Hall, SUFFOLK, UK.
What would happen if you made a painting so big that it became almost real? And what if the characters in that painting started to fall out and into our reality? These were the thoughts percolating in photographer Tim Walker’s mind when he conceived of “Blow-Up” in W magazine April 2011 issue.
Walker, together with set and costume designer Rhea Thierstein and their respective teams, spent days super-sizing some of his favorite works,  and then transferring them onto the walls of Glemham Hall, a vast Elizabethan house in Suffolk, England. “There’s something ghostly about it,” says Walker, “something of the past.”
