After Retouch

The art of Retouch is purely about re-interpretation of already great works of art; it allows the image to be re-imagined, evolved in ways that make it part of a living process of evolution/adaptation. With that said art of course is subjective and some may/may not like my interpretations but that’s the beauty of life and humanity; it’s more about the individuality/uniqueness we bring rather than following a specific pattern of conformity. However my red line is interfering in any way with the painter strokes as these need always be maintained in my opinion. Anyway I do hope that you like at least some of my works in art retouch because I do so enjoy it.

For retouch work I display the before (original)/after image for comparison while in my photo/art site the after image is sold. Also note that all art originals are duly licensed in the way they are used.

About the Painter (Wikipedia):

Nicolas-Jean-Baptiste Raguenet (1715 – 17 April 1793) was a French painter born in Gentilly.

He was the son of Jean-Baptiste Raguenet (1682–1755), actor and painter, and Genevieve Murgues. The Raguenets, father and son, put together a veritable portrait of Paris with their many paintings depicting buildings and landscapes in the city.

A master painter trained at the Académie de Saint-Luc, he was responsible for many “View of Paris” paintings, notably of the Seine, with an almost photographic precision, which adds a historical interest to his works in addition to their artistic value. Many of his works were acquired by the Carnavalet Museum in 1882.
