Transforming the Masterpiece

By sifting through centuries of European art, this series will find answers to the question: what exactly have artists let themselves in for when they rework some of the greatest poems and stories ever written ?
Is it an act of homage, or rivalry, or translation, or all three at once? And when a poet takes on a painting, is the artistic challenge the same, only in reverse ?


The beauty of privacy

Ever since the two Elders watched Susanna bathe 2,000 years ago in The Book of Daniel, painters have spied on all 3 in the name of art. Does this give women artists a head start? Rembrandt, Rubens and Tintoretto vie with Artemisia Gentileschi to be Susanna’s best champion.
