Art History Meets Music Video

It has been called the “year’s most artful music video.” It certainly has fun playing with fine art! Franco-American band Hold Your Horses recreated several famous paintings for the music video of their new song “70 Million.” The all-male band cheekily donned body paint, costumes, and strategically placed guitars to recreate classics by DaVinci, Van Gogh, Botticelli, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Chagall, Kahlo, and more.

Well worth a watch:
