Long list of paintings for appropriation.

Posted: August 3, 2019 at 1:49 pm

With all this focus on the Zombie Formalist I’ve been spending some of the ML search time researching for the painting history appropriation aspect of the project. I’ve narrowed down a long list of paintings based on popularity and their trajectory from Northern European Renaissance realism to modern problematizations of realism; I’ve selected works from the Renaissance, Cubism and Surrealism, as follows. Thumbnail images are included below the table.

The next step for this component of the project is to do some ML to reorganize the pixels and see what works best. The resolution some of the sources are quite high, quite low for others. It’s yet unclear how to consider the scale of the originals in the appropriation works as some are very large. I’m also not sure how large I will be able to go with the self-reorganization process.
