Very nice. This might be an intriguing idea to apply to other works as well; how about reverse-engineering some of Picasso’s work to reveal, say, what the women who inspired Les Demoiselles d’Avignon might have looked like? Not that it’s real reverse-engineering, of course; it’s another filter, another artist’s imagination, another act of creation. But a fascinating exercise nonetheless.
