Mapes is not alone in recreating works by Dutch Masters. Feature documentary Tim’s Vermeer has been shortlisted for an Academy Award: in it, inventor Tim Jenison attempts to paint Vermeer’s The Music Lesson with the help of technology. Other contemporary artists to reference Dutch Masters in their work include the Dutch photographer Hendrik Kerstens, who has taken portraits of his daughter since 1995 using the composition and lighting technique of painters like Vermeer. His most famous image, Bag, in which a plastic bag is shaped to look like a lace hood, was used by the designer Alexander McQueen as inspiration for one of his collections. Meanwhile, American photographer Nina Katchadourian has been an Internet hit with her collection of images taken in aeroplane toilets, where she mimics the work of Dutch Masters using props like a travel pillow.
