The Instagram handle’s bio gives their 65.1K followers a prelude to their art. It reads: “This,” I said by way of a preface meant to keep his interest alive, “is the spot where Monet came to paint,” referencing a line from the novel “Call Me By Your Name” upon which the movie was based. Their limited curation — 25 photos in total — pull scenes from the highly acclaimed film and integrate them with paintings by Claude Monet.
Now, a second wave of brilliant Timothée Chalamet fan accounts have surfaced. One such platform making headlines for photoshopping the young muse in famous paintings is: “Chalametinart”. In just two weeks, the account has accrued more than ten thousand followers.
“Paintings that have had Chalamet inserted into them include Caravaggio’s “Boy With a Basket of Fruit,” Richard Westall’s “George Gordon Byron,” and Grant Wood’s “American Gothic,” says Indiewire’s Zach Sharf.
