Original (Left): "Orpheus With His Lute": Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796-1875) Derivative Version (Right): "Orpheus With His Lute Near a Reflecting Pool," by the webmaster _______________________________
"Artwork-y" refers to art that has been derived from existing images via computer manipulation, for example, Adobe or other electronic media.
The background of this blog has been derived from the painting "Orpheus With His Lute," by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796-1875).
It is clear that the above derivative piece is not "original," that Corot's hand is still very much in evidence. However, some derivative pieces can be totally unlike their originals. For example:
The photo on the left is an old family photograph. I'm the girl in the yellow suit. The image on the right has been manipulated from that photo, obviously cropped and "arted up." ________________________________
Can artwork-y, a derivative art form, really be considered art?
