The Painter and His Model

Oskar Kokoschka

Oskar Kokoschka - The Painter and His Model
Corresponding to Oskar Kokoschka’s typical 1950s style, the lithograph alludes to the traditional concept of art as mimesis - an imitation of the viewed reality. Moreover, it gives evidence of Kokoschka’s humour and hyperbole, imparting to the portrayed painter (as well as to himself) an image of a monkey - the master of imitation.
