The artist Carine Légeret is modelling “Paint By Numbers,” a Muy Marcottage dress.
This dress was made from secondhand clothing found at the San Lorenzo outdoor market in Rome. The top part was a boring white summer dress that I gave some color to by transforming it into a pseudo-paint by number kit.
Remember those Paint By Numbers kits so popular starting with the 1950’s?And that so many people bought them seems to imply that many want to be an artist whether or not they have talent. PAINT BY NUMBER kits guarantee A Successful Painting. Instant gratification can sometimes make life easier!
In the book Math and the Mona Lisa: The Art and Science of Leonardo Da Vinci, the author tells us that it was Leonardo who invented “paint-by-numbers” so that his assistents could help him with his commissions.
