It is Alive in the Lab: Need Help Identifying A Painting? Revit3D.com to the rescue...

I could never do what I do without people like Scott Sheppard doing what he's doing at Autodesk's 'It's Alive in the Lab', the Autodesk laboratory where they get to create technology that makes the design experience of the future become a reality now. Yesterday morning, I saw Scott's Lab post Request for Help Identifying a Painting and I decided to see what I could come up with. I must say it was about as impossible a task as some of Scott's work challenges, but I refused to give up. Below are the results and I was thrilled that Scott gave me an entire blog post on http://LABS.BLOG.COM/its_alive_in_the_lab/2009/06/seek-and-yee-shall-find.html

It's funny. I'm thinking how cool it is to have my blog, readers, recognition and to be able to stand out in the crowd and then I look at the painting below and it's a group of faceless, anonymous, generic group of people, which makes all of this stand out even more. Yes, it's nice to be noticed and stand out in the crowd. It's taken a lot of hard work to get here and I like making a difference in the world. Thank you all.

Need Help Identifying A Painting? Revit3D.com to the rescue...

"Corps à corps bleu" by Gerard-Fromangert

Isn't technology a beautiful thing? Isn't the community we have formed using a the internet like a family? In response to my posting Need Help Identifying a Painting, I received this email from Gregory Arkin who mans the Revit3D.com blog.

Dear Scott:

I always love a challenge, so after failing at Google image searching for words like silhouette, bicycle, Paris, artwork, etc. for a very long while (thank goodness for Firefox autopager), I decided to go a different route. Instead of searching for the image using Google, I used Google to search for a tool that would be of assistance. I Googled "upload image search," found a website called TinEye.com, uploaded your image, and came up with five results within 15 seconds:

None of the results were very helpful, and one was a non-existent website, but alas, one did return a clue. The file name had "Gerard-Fromangert" in the name. A little more research uncovered http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%A9rard_Fromanger and there you have it.

    "Corps à corps bleu" is the name of the piece of art and it was housed at Paris-Sienne (2003-2006) Centre Beaubourg, Paris

I am not having so much luck finding the availability of reprints, but I'll keep looking. I hope I'm the first to come up with the information for you. It was well worth the effort for the appreciation I have of all you've done in "The Lab." Keep up the great work. I love what you guys are doing.

Good luck finding a copy for your daughter.

Thanks Gregory! As this is the kind of investigatory work that Gregory does, you Revit users should check out Revit3D.com to garner the tips and tricks Gregory has unearthed. I'm sure you'll be as grateful as I am.

Appreciating the help from our Labs family is alive in the Lab.
