A Cheeky Spin on Art History by “Hold Your Horses!,” a polyphonic rock band from Paris

A bit of Bardo on the light side. Warning: Artistic nudity.

This irreverent music video for 70 Million, the hit song by the Franco-American band, Hold Your Horses!, offers a wink at art history. The inventive seven-member group playfully recreated twenty-five iconic paintings – can you name them all? – from Da Vinci to Andy Warhol. Enjoy!

What follows is a video using the original paintings with the artist’s name on each. If you care to, you can check it out to see if you got all the paintings and artists right when you viewed the first video.

The focus of "The BeZine," a publication of The Bardo Group Beguines, is on sacred space (common ground) as it is expressed through the arts. Our work covers a range of topics: spirituality, life, death, personal experience, culture, current events, history, art, and photography and film. We share work here that is representative of universal human values however differently they might be expressed in our varied religions and cultures. We feel that our art and our Internet-facilitated social connection offer a means to see one another in our simple humanity, as brothers and sisters, and not as “other.” This is a space where we hope you’ll delight in learning how much you have in common with “other” peoples. We hope that your visits here will help you to love (respect) not fear. For more see our Info/Mission Statement Page.

  1. Brilliant! One of my favorite board games was “Masterpiece”, which I played endlessly with my 3 sisters. We all took classes at the Art Institute of Chicago, too. Only a few of these were new to me, and I marvel at the fun (and patience) it must have taken to recreate them all!


  2. Marvellous. Art has no boundaries. This would make a good, but very difficult to perform and produce stage production, I think.
    P.S. I would have struggled to guess the title and artist of less than a handful of these masterpieces!
