Charlotte Bracegirdle's Blog. I want to explore appropriation in art, as it is something I do. How does appropriation art win "Fair use" ?
 

Atalanta And Hippomenes by Guido Reni is an inspiration to me. It started of a whole new way of how I looked at images and how I then began other ways of altering them.
Above is my painted version.

Victoria and Albert Museum: Photographs Gallery

On 24 October 2011, the V&A’s new Photographs Gallery was opened to the public. The gallery has an inaugural display of works by key figures of photographic history including Victorian portraits by Julia Margaret Cameron and significant works by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Man Ray, Afred Stieglitz, Diane Arbus and Irving Penn.

The Photographs Gallery draws upon the V&A’s internationally renowned collection of photographs, and chronicles the history of photography from 1839 up to the 1960s. In 1858, the V&A became the first museum to exhibit photographs, and the new Photographs Gallery is able to showcase some of the most technically brilliant and artistically accomplished photographs in its collection. Temporary displays, primarily showcasing contemporary photography, will be shown in the V&A’s existing photographs gallery.

The photograph on the left is by Olga mate, entitled Nude with Dance Movement. Budapest, c. 1920. The image on the right is my version, again another tricky image to paint on.

The image on the left is by Denes Ronai entitled Dance: Salome Budapest, 1930s. On the right is my version. This was a really difficult one to paint out due to the colour of the photograph.

Derivative work

A “derivative work” is a work based upon one or more pre-existing works, such as a translation, musical arrangement, dramatization, fictionalization, motion picture version, sound recording, art reproduction, abridgment, condensation, or any other form in which a work may be recast, transformed, or adapted. A work consisting of editorial revisions, annotations, elaborations, or other modifications which, as a whole, represent an original work of authorship, is a “derivative work”.

The most famous derivative work in the world has been said to be L.H.O.O.Q.,[18] also known as the Mona Lisa With a Moustache. Generations of US copyright law professors — since at least the 1950s — have used it as a paradigmatic example. Marcel Duchamp created the work by adding, among other things, a moustache, goatee, and the caption L.H.O.O.Q. (meaning “she has a hot tail”) to Leonardo’s iconic work. 

The photograph on the left  is by Diane Arbus, she is one of my favourite photographers, next is my version.
