The Three Anatomists
Proceeding in a somber palette. This painting is loosely based on a very blurry vintage photo of some medical students dissecting a corpse. I have taken the composition and am filling the faces in with inventions. Though I am inventing the portraits, I have paid a lot of attention to the faces of young anatomists and compared several photos. There is sometimes a look of fear, disgust, coldness, haughtiness.... a lot of visages you would associate with a postures of antagonism.
