Question 2: Transform.
Question 2: Transform Artists are sometimes inspired by the idea of transforming the work of others. Examples include Tom Hunter’s photographic recreation of Vermeer’s ‘Girl Reading a Letter at an Open Window’, Anthony Caro’s series of sculptures, the Duccio Variations, Picasso’s many responses to Las Meninas by Velasquez, and Bill Viola’s Catherine’s room, a video based on a 14th century Sienesealterpiece. Research appropriate sources and develop your own response to the idea of transforming the work of others.
