"Thanks to art, instead of seeing a single world, our own, we see it multiply until we have before us as many worlds as there are original artists."
As an artist, I occassionally do copies of art that I want to learn more from. One of the pieces I did was the Gulf Stream by Homer.It was hard to do because every since that stupid movie (great movie, great director) I have an unbelievable fear of sharks. So much that I won't go into any water over my head. Not even a swimming pool (see the original Thunderball, 007 movie) and the Homer has easily a half dozen of the beggers swimming around the boat. I had seen this picture, Narrow Escape, but from the looks of it, I'm thinking there was no escape....No way am I ever going boating on the ocean!
I think Copley is arguably the greatest painter of the 18th century and Watson is arguably the greatest painting of the eighteenth century.I know I must sound crazy. But I intend to write a piece about it nonetheless! Lol!
omg i saw that at the DC national gallery about 2 weeks ago
