In his mid-fifties and at the height of his career, Cézanne began a series of paintings, drawings, and watercolors of card players. Cézanne referred to this series as 'souvenirs of the museums', as they were steeped in art historical references to paintings by past European masters. Painting a woman enjoying this piece in a museum adds another layer to these references.

The figure on my small study is enjoying a rendition of Leonardo da Vinci‘s Mona Lisa by Fernando Botero. This Colombian artist began his career by copying famous paintings and became known for his 'fat figures'. His style is unique, recognizable from a mile away and has its roots in satire.

In painting Mona Lisa, Botero has created an image that is so very far removed from the delicate and enigmatic Mona Lisa by Leonardo, that this image almost feels like it is a parody.

Guernica is probably Picasso's most famous work and certainly his most powerful political statement. He painted it as an immediate reaction to the Nazi's devastating casual bombing practice on the Basque town of Guernica during Spanish Civil War.

Guernica shows the tragedies of war and the suffering it inflicts upon individuals, particularly innocent civilians. This work has gained a monumental status, becoming a perpetual reminder of the tragedies of war, an anti-war symbol, and an embodiment of peace.
