Classic art -with tails – at Miami Int’l Airport

If you’re headed to Miami International Airport anytime soon, be sure to take a few moments to enjoy the paintings in the airport Central Terminal Gallery, located post-security in Concourse E.

In an exhibition titled The Masterpieces, Kristen Thiele has taken classical paintings and humorously re-created them with cats and dogs replacing people.

Each piece is painted on the back of a discarded window pane using the 15th century German painting technique known as hinter glas malerei, which translates to: “behind glass painting.” So what we see from left to right was actually painted from right to left in reverse.
