Remarkable Artwork

Modern Times (Diversity)

Modern Times (Diversity)
by Justine Tjallinks

This is a portrait as part from a larger series. For this series I created interpretations of famous or relatively famous historical paintings. The clothes are designed by internationally celebrated contemporary Dutch Fashion designers who each also take daily inspiration from the masters. I street casted all my models myself and did my own retouching to keep control over the results from the sketch to the endresult. Even though a sense of nostalgia speaks through my art, the aim is to always remain in line with the contemporary zeitgeist. This work is inspired by the portrait of Dauphine Marie Joseph Saxon created by pastel painter Liotard (1751). Instead of a pale powered young woman, I chose Anke as the model. Anke has Albinism.
