Aerial View of Roads looking like Musical Instruments for BMW
To celebrate their collaboration with renowned Teatro alla Scala of Milano, BMW has imagined a series of 3 creative ad prints depicting aerial views of roads and landscapes looking like guitar, violin and mandolin with a tagline saying “BMW takes you on the road to great music”. A work by Alessandro Bavari.
Girl with a Mandolin (1870). Jules Joseph Lefebvre (French, Academic, 1836-1911). Oil on canvas.
The girl here is a somber and forlorn gypsy, a moody brunette with expressive, soulful eyes, dressed in dark colors, seemingly lost in the snow and clutching her mandolin as though it’s all she has in her vagabond life. As the mandolin is a symbol of physical love, perhaps she is a victim of unrequited love.
