A talented artist has taken her love of the film Call Me By Your Name to the next level by recreating scenes from the movie in the style of impressionist French painter, Claude Monet.

Posted on the Instagram account Call Me By Monet, the pictures which have been created by 22-year-old Filipino artist Mika Labrague, depict key scenes from the film set against the backdrop of famous Monet paintings.

Based on a book by André Aciman, the film which details a summer romance between 17-year-old Elio and 24-year-old Oliver in the north Italian countryside, took its inspiration from an 1884 Monet painting of a villa surrounded by wild gardens.

Speaking to Elle Décor, the author explained: The villa in the Monet. The vision of the house. I loved the house, and I wanted to people it. I had no idea who was going to be in it.’

Quotes from the film are included in the captions, perfectly merged with the titles of the paintings including The Parc Monceau, Olive Trees, and The Wheat Field.

Others include ‘I like the way you say things, in The Pond at Montegeron by Claude Monet (1976)’, and the classic teen request: ‘Mom, can you pick me up? In The Road from Vetheuil by Claude Monet (1880)’.

And Labrague has also depicted Elio’s brief fling with Marzia, as well as Elio and Oliver’s romance, including her in two of the 20 images on the account.
