Here’s a drawing after an Ingres portrait by Kirstin Lamb. Her copy has become an entirely new image, quite in its own right, with wonderfully loose lines and frank directness. It’s certainly fun for me finding it and being able to demonstrate someone else’s use of copies. You discover how fully inventive Lamb’s copy after Ingres is by comparing it with its original. Mrs. Hayard has had a good make-over, as a consequence becoming a thoroughly modern Millie.
