http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...s-150-years-history-life-glorious-colour.html An incredible artist has taken some of the defining historical moments of the past 150 years years and brought them to life in 'colourised' photos. From a portrait of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria before he was assassinated in 1914, to a Vietnamese Mahayana Buddhist monk burning himself to death at a busy intersection in Saigon in June 1963, Brazilian artist Marina Amaral has transformed photos from around the world. The stunning collection of images capture emotive moments from both World Wars, painting a grim picture of what life was like on the front line.

In the spring of 1918, Nicholas and his family were executed by the Bolsheviks. Gangster: Alphonse Gabriel 'Al' Capone was an American gangster who attained fame during the Prohibition era as the co-founder and boss of the Chicago Outfit. His seven-year reign as crime boss ended when he was 33 years old. The Red Baron: Manfred von Richthofen (1892-1918) earned widespread fame as a World War I ace fighter pilot. He was credited with 80 kills before being shot down, his legend as the fearsome Red Baron enduring well after his death. Assassinated: Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was born on December 18, 1863, in Graz, Austria. In 1900, Ferdinand gave up his children's rights to the throne in order to marry a lady-in-waiting. In 1914, a Serb nationalist assassinated him. One month later, Austria declared war on Serbia and World War I began.
