Darth Vader with Parasol: Keeping the Dark Side in the Shade
February 16th, 2012
Ever thought that a Dark Lord of the Sith would use a parasol to keep out of the sun? I suppose that the Dark Side prefers to stay in the shade, right? One artist decided to re-imagine a famous painting by Monet, featuring Darth Vader prominently using his umbrella.
It’s odd to me that the little kid looks identical to the one in the original painting. I probably would have changed him into a little Stormtrooper – but that’s just me.
The original Woman with Parasol was created by French impressionist painter Claude Monet back in 1875, and it’s currently on display at the National Gallery of Art, in Washington DC. It’s certainly a worth millions – if not priceless.
This Vader painting, on the other hand, was created by David Barton, and you can get a small (7.9″ x 10″) print of this piece of art via Imagekind starting at about $25(USD) Canvas prints start at $94.
