— I Never Forget A Face

It’s always intriguing to see the faces of the creators behind famous works of art.

Life Magazine ran an article showing fourty photographs of artists at work. I have chosen only a few of them to show here but have also added an image of the finished piece.

 

How many of the artists would you have recognised without seeing them next to their more easily identified work?

 

Target, Jasper Johns, 1958

 

Les Marguerites, Georges Braque, 1946

 

The Tribe of Levi (Hadassah Hospital, Jerusalem), Marc Chagall, 1960

 

Madonna de Port Lligat, Salvador Dali, 1950

 

The Mirror Painting, Guy du Bois, 1949

 

Walking Man I, Alberto Giacometti, 1951

 

Rock Form, Barbara Hepworth, 1964

 

Number 1, Jackson Pollock, 1949
