A Little Bit of Art History part 5. 2006.

39x24 inches.
Acrylic painting on board.

This is made up of painted copies of artists that interest me. In this painting the people become characters who are striking up relationships with each other. Some are disdainful, others are amused, couples discuss the merits of those adjacent. Leonardo's women appear to be rather taken with Perseus, although Gauguin's women might fancy him too. This painting also poses the question "What makes a great painting?" Is it just virtuoso technique as in the Van Hornthorst or is it something deeper like in the Rembrandt?

Scroll down for detail and a larger picture. Place cursor over either full picture to zoom in.
