    ‘Appropriation in art and art history refers to the practice of artists using pre-existing objects or images in their art with little transformation of the original’ (Tate, no date). Artists have been appropriating for many centuries and tend to use the most iconic of masterpieces from the past and make them more contemporary for today’s style.

This masterpiece was crafted by an “artistic genius” that has impacted almost every field of art that we currently practice. He famously said, “Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life” (Voorhies, 2015). If this is true, and art does have an impact on our very soul, it is essential for us to educate ourselves
