It is so interesting to see the unusual posts in your blog. I don't think I have ever seen any of these, except for the original. All are interesting art interpretations.

Ahh France. In the original painting a couple of other things were being liberated besides France.

Yes! These images inform artists till today. They are Art Icons.

I'm thinking on the visual meme of heroes casually walking away in the foreground from explosions in the background. This is is every action film, and now even car commercials.
Ringing any bells from your art explorations?

I think we all have things in life that we want to blow up and walk away from. Hence the inner response of the audience to this visual meme.

Vive la ... France? Japan? Exposed breast?

it's a rather gruesome painting to parody - looks like they have toned down the violence aspect.
