About this Curation

Painting was considered a trade that could be taught, the earliest known artist apprentice began mixing pigments and preparing canvases learning the skills and techniques of an older master. Then when certain skills had been acquired the novice would paint copies of their teachers work. This is now common practice as elements of contemporary work demonstrate the influence of old painting masters as artists continue to be inspired by the painters before them.

Whether it be style, composition or technique contemporary creatives continue to tribute work the old masters.
