“There’s no harm in repeating a good thing.”

Gage artist David Dwyer stands with his mastercopy, created at the Frye Art Museum.

Gage artist David Dwyer stands with his master copy of Landscape with Church Towers, by Franz-Xaver Hoch (German, 1869-1916), created at the Frye Art Museum.

These works celebrate a centuries-old technique known as, “master copying,” a foundation of the classical training in the Aristides Atelier.

“Master copies give (students) experience in color mixing, color composition and application. It is such a rewarding process that artists of the past used to continue this practice throughout their careers.

The finished master copy helps reveal how to achieve a perfect resolution, combining excellent technique with insight into the unique self-expression of the master.”
