‘The Past and Present no.3’by Augustus Leopold Egg , was the print/painting i chose to work from as a starting point
I have been looking into the colour and way the image was structured to get accross the theme of the adulterous ‘Fallen Woman’.
I wanted to look deeper into Therese Raquin by Emile Zola which is a french novel based on a murderous cheating wife and her demise into prostitution.
I am however maybe going to look into the modern day version of the painting i chose – perhaps women in music and fashion wearing more erotic outfits? Maybe looking into strip clubs/ prostitution escort sites etc?
