Other Collage-Based Paintings

This page from H.W. Janson’s History of Art textbook serves as my inspiration for translating collages into paintings. The page shows the creative decision making of Albrecht Durer (for example, in the way he depicts water, describes form, and separates the figures from the ground) in translating an etching by Andrea Mantegna into his own, unique pen drawing.
