Project 2- re-inventing the past

“Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing” Botero

“Bad artists copy. Good artists steal.” Pablo Picasso

Your second assignment is to choose and image from art history to re-invent, put in a modern context, and make your own original version. Unlike popular belief artists do not work in isolation but rather use each other to feed their work. Here are some good examples of “re-invented works”.
