43(B)log: Creative Piracy: The Paintings of Russell Connor:

Russell Connor makes paintings based on artistically significant paintings, both within copyright and without. He juxtaposes Goya and Manet, Renoir and Gaugin (“By joining the two worlds, my painting represents the familiar phenomenon of older, or less “civilized,” cultures seeking to survive by displaying their picturesqueness to the tourists.”), Rubens and Picasso, and so on.
