Monet - San Giorgio Maggiore by Twilight
Color mosaic of "San Giorgio Maggiore by Twilight" by Claude Monet 144x96 lego bricks.
About this creation
This is the first large scale color mosaic i have done. This is a 144 x 96 brick (3 x 2 extra large baseplate, 30 x 45 inches, 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 feet) mosaic of Monet's San Giorgio Maggiore by Twilight.

The actual art is featured in 1999's Thomas Crown Affair and is supposedly worth "...over 100 million bucks." Now, if this Lego mosaic was worth that much I would be set!

I planned this out for a while and it took me a few months from start to finish, but that is just because my fingers needed a break.

I used black, white, dark bluish gray, light bluish gray, orange, medium blue, blue, green, red, and yellow.

I need to get some better pics, but here are a few.

Micah, this is a great piece. You've outdone yourself here. Great color, and it really pops out. You need to find something to brace it from behind though, my friend, it looks like it's buckling (common ocurrence with that much weight! Great job! Dave www.brickwares.com

Beauty at first sight. The variety of colors that form the twilight make this mosaic all the more enchanting.

Great job on getting the softness that many of Monet's works are known for, and of course the colors are beautiful. Nicely done!

Ah yes. Though I haven't seen many live Monets, I've always liked this one. I believe this is also the same one in The Thomas Crown Affair. Good day

Incredibly beautiful. Monet's river scenes are to die for. Thanks for building/posting this. BTW it would make great PC wallpaper.
