the woman is a prophet

the woman is a prophet 

Cut-paper collage.

Woman, palette, and paintbrush are from a 1660 self-portrait by Judith Leyster (1609-1660). Leyster was one of very few professional female painters of the "Dutch golden age." The painting-in-progress on her easel is a detail from a 1984 painting by Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988). Background from William Morris.

I find it humorous that even though Leyster was 51 when she painted this self-portrait, she portrayed herself as a very young woman, about 19-20. But I find it downright ASTONISHING that she is painting in the unmistakable style of Basquiat, who wasn't even BORN until 300 years later. What a prophet!

Gee, it's fun to play with time. =smile=
