ICONS and MASTERS, DIALOG 1

Some artists and some images have had great influence on world culture. This painting takes some of the iconic images (those that particularly speak to me) created by some of the masters of painting and re-imagines them in a new visual "conversation". One consisting in the interaction of the images themselves and in the subject matter of each. Personally, I see Life and Love in this. Anyone who has contemplated the works of Botticelli, Michelangelo, Klimt and Matisse that inspired this painting is part of the dialog, really, since in contemplating those works we react and respond to them.
