Now, do the same at home. A team of contemporary artists have chosen and reproduced 30 of the worlds greatest paintings. The works include examples from the Renaissance to the present day, and differ widely in approach, style, and subject matter, encouraging versatility in the imitator. An amazing array of illustration show the re-creations at various stages, while detailed captions explain how you can copy the work exactly. Start with choosing the fight equipment, then try painting the classics, including van Eycks Man in a Turban, Botticellis The Birth of Venus, Durers Young Hare, Titians Mother and Child, Matisses Lady in Blue, Hockneys A Bigger Splash, and of course the most imitated painting of all, Leonardo da Vincis Mona Lisa.
