Working from history

Working from history

I always encourage my students to work from the masters of the past, as well as from contemporary artists and the world around them. It’s been too long since I last took that advice myself. This piece was painted in 2013, I think, from Roman Girl at a Fountain (1875) by Pierre Bonnard. I was lucky enough to see this painting in MET in New York a few years earlier where it absolutely blew me away.
