The copyist

For any professional, the copyist is subject to some strict rules. Thus, the copyist may not reproduce the signature of the author of the work, which distinguishes it from the forger and preserves of illegality. Similary, the dimensions of its reproduction must differ from the original model.

Only copies of paintings which the author entered the public domain can be executed, that the painter died at least 70 years. For any copyist who should make an original work, the task is arduous and delicate. In an Alchemy of pigments, he must reproduce as faithfully as possible the tones, shades, light and the trace of its original model.

The table of the master, before which the copyist bows humbly, is a nearly inaccessible work, an ideal of perfection. It is also a source of inspiration and the best school that is the most demanding.

Also the sake of similarity, the copyist applies to rebroadcast the emotions that a master's work may lead to the person who contemplates  it through his brush and his technique,and to give body and soul to a simple copy.
