Do you have a favorite painting in the Fenimore Art Museum that you would like to closely study and “bring home” with you? An established and widespread method of classical art training, copying directly from the masters is one of the best ways to understand what went into creating a work of art and to expand your own painting skills. This class will thoroughly investigate a painting on view at Fenimore Art Museum, discuss the materials and techniques used by the artist, and explain how to translate the image to your own canvas.

 

Some of the questions we will explore are: Who was the artist and what was their background? How did their era and environment influence their work? What is the subject and context of the painting? What is the composition? What materials and colors were used and how was paint applied? Most importantly, we will discuss what the student can learn from stepping outside of his/her typical practices into someone else’s methods.
