Impressionist Composition #10

2nd in a week long series showing my 'Impressionist Suite' from the mid-80s.

The body impression of a sock on a calf from a friend of mine fit perfectly over this
painting by Mary Cassatt. I loved how the arch of the calf connected the two arms and
created a sort of elongated football shape in the middle of the image.

One of the things I was trying to accomplish in this series was to force the viewer to
see the abstract qualities of the original impressionist painting by covering up the
main subject matter of the painting with the latter day impressionist photo.
