A Series

Artemisia Gentileschi, the great Baroque artist, found the repetition of subject matter cathartic. Claude Monet, the visionary Impressionist, thought a subject could not be understood until it was painted multiple times. Andy Warhol, the renowned Pop artist, believed the more you make, the more you can sell.

In the spirit of the prolific artists that came before me, here are two more depictions of my mangled little foot.

    I think all three artists have valid points, and it comes down to your own opinion & values.

    I believe that a series, the way Monet painted his waterlilies, haystacks etc is very important to learning more about the play of light & colour, so it is most applicable to impressionist-style painters & plein air artists.

    I agree with Warhol, but I also think that this undermines the value of each artwork (the whole mass-production thing that influenced his style of art).

    Artemisia Gentileschi would probably have done many studies before even beginning on a painting, so his study was pure study (whereas Monet’s, for example, were finished paintings), and after so many studies, I’m not surprised he did not want to repeat the subject.

    Thanks for the great read, Jen.

    P.S. Hope your foot gets better soon!!
