Le Belle et la Bete, Ghostbusters 2, Frida, The Stendhal Syndrome,  Night at the Museum, Harry Potter…  – Films where paintings come to life. Any more? What about books or poems?

My  painting, Portrait of Pierre, has been used for the cover of a novel by Italian author Federico Sabatini. The portrait was then brought to life by artist Mauro F Cardinali… for a performance in Italy.

The animated portrait sings and plays guitar.

What would the portraits below do if they came to life, I wonder?
