Here’s a challenge, let’s see if you can identify every single painting reference Hold Your Horses! have used for their “70 Million” video. They’re a French-American musical collective (Arcade Fire style) with a very characteristic pop-folk style which remind us of those typical French fanfares..

A video which has quickly become a viral hit on the internet (for such an unknown group & low budget) with more than 300.000 views in Youtube and more than 400k on Vimeo! Produced by L’Ogre, here are some tips for you to guess the paintings…

Caravaggio, The Beheading of Saint John the Baptist (1608)
Rembrandt, The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp (1632)
