Comparing to other people who believing that the
Mona Lisa is a self-portrait of Leonardo Da Vinci, Schwartz
showed this idea using her anatomy and biology knowledge. Although she made
none of this two work, the idea of combination proved her imagination. Besides,
I believe this work showed the private idea of “Photoshop”. PS was not developed
until 1988. Lillian Schwartz first noticed that the play with the existing artwork
with computer could also create a new one.
Today, people would universally recognize her as a
pioneer of computer-mediated art. But the most important lesson I learned from
her experience and this work is that any education background which seems not directly
connected to the art could left a interesting mark in artists’ work.
