Last weeks I was working on my new painting «Olympia’s weekend».
It is homage to Manet’s «Olympia» famous painting, but also to amazing moving sculpture by Paul Spooner. I saw it a few years ago in automata’s exhibition, and was absolutely charmed. The black lady became an egyptian god Anubis, and you can see how annoyed Olympia is breathing heavily, but shows no attention to him.
Olympia by Paul Spooner.
This is the oryginal Olympia by Manet, (c. 1863):
