Paintings I have made copies of from the original artwork. Most of the work here was created from the originals in New York, Brooklyn and Washington D.C.
Copying a master painting or drawing is one of the most rewarding ways to learn the craft of painting and drawing. All of the artists that are displayed in the 19th Century galleries at the Metropolitan did copying in a museum, the Louvre.
Some of the paintings you'll see in a museum are, in fact, copies, or replicas, of the artist's own work, done by the artist or his assistants. This is not to be confused with a forgery, which is when artwork tries to pass as an original.
