reenactment- mark lang

Can you guess why this painting by Mark Lang is titled "Re-enactment?"

2 reasons....1) It is a re-enactment of the Last Supper. 2) Features actors who played artists, usually in a biographical film, like Kirk Douglas as Van Gogh, Ed Harris as Jackson Pollock, David Bowie as Warhol...who else...Salma Hayek as Frida Kahlo...Tim Roth as someone...Van Gogh again? Guy who played Basquiat. Picasso is in there.

But the question we really need to ask is where is the delicious Colin Firth as Vermeer???

It's Salma Hayek as Frida that gives it away immediately. Without her, I would have had to look.
