An open exhibition kicked off yesterday where modern artists are showing their takes on a range of masterpieces. Making it, Faking it will run until January 23 at the Orleans House Gallery in Twickenham. London.
The organisers say that the works question notions of ‘originality’ and ‘authenticity'. The art shown ranged from meticulous exact copies in oil to radical reworkings in different or incongruous media.
