About this project

About

As part of the "art history" series, I'm creating another reproduction of a famous work of art as a body painting. 

To create this image, I will do the body painting, photography and retouching.

Below are sample images from past projects. You can see more finished body painting images from this series on my site: DENART NY body painting studio

In her own words, this is why she wants to be part of this project:

"Sargent’s work in general has such a uniformity of excellence. There is a realism about his portraits, yet there remains a fleeting sense of Romanticism. This period in music is very dear to me as well; the art’s zenith, the death and transfiguration of the Romantic era (leading up to the effects of WWI on all forms of art) have always kept a particular fascination in me."

To become Madame X — Gautreau’s beauty, provocative dress and studied indifference, her rumored affairs — would be, in a sense, to vicariously assume that form, to have lived in that time, if only for a moment. “
