UK (BBC) FAMOUS landscape paintings have been recreated without trees by an Edinburgh University scientist to draw attention to the value of woods and forests. Dr Iain Woodhouse removed trees from Constable’s The Haywain, Seurat’s Sunday afternoon on the Island of Grande Jatte, and Van Gogh’s Olive Trees with Yellow Sky and Sun. He hopes his work will highlight the threat of global deforestation. He said: “It is crucial that trees do not disappear from our landscapes.”
