Van Gogh, Renoir and Hopper recreated in tribute to famous mealtimes

The work of famous painters Edward Hopper, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Vincent van Gogh has been recreated to inspire people to get round a table and share a meal together.

The photography, commissioned by furniture retailer IKEA and shot by photographer Tim Cole is a tribute to famous mealtimes from history.

The collection sees Hopper's Nighthawks, Renoir's Luncheon of the Boating Party and Van Gogh's The Potato Eaters in a whole new light, as they are loving re-created as contemporary real life scenes.

The three paintings have been re-contextualised for modern times but retain their iconic composition and recognisable tones.

Photographer Tim Cole said: "It was an exciting challenge to be asked to capture the couple's quiet meal on a gloomy evening from Nighthawks, the gaiety of the summer gathering from the Boating Party, and the humble sharing of a simple supper after an honest day's work in The Potato Eaters.”
