Appropriation • The deliberate reworking of images or styles from previous, well known works of art; a hallmark of Post-Modernism.
“It is almost a year now since we saw the Van Gogh exhibition, and really, the memory of it haunts me ceaselessly.” - Andre Derain, 1902
Influence • Being swayed or inspired by an artist’s styles or ideas. The work produced may not resemble the influencing source.
Appropriation and Influence are not absolutes, they are points on a spectrum
