Original

DEFINITION

Any work considered to be an authentic example of the works of an artist, rather than a reproduction or imitation. The term excludes works produced "in the studio of" an artist, because that usually means that it was made by others, even if under the artist&#39;s influence or at his direction. This attribution must be qualified further, however, for workshop paintings in which there is evidence of the master&#39;s hand. Although they are less valued for various reasons, copies and reproductions have had tremendous impact on our experience, reaching greater audience than originals ever could, and they act as a tonic to commodification. Original may also mean the first, preceding all others. In that sense, it may refer to a prototype, a model after which other works are made, each bears great similarity to the first.Quote: "No one can be profoundly original who does not avoid eccentricity." Andr? Maurois (1885-1967), French author, critic. The Art of Writing, "Turgenev" (1960). Also see after, appropriation, art conservation, counterfeit, creativity, derivative, derived image, forgery, historicity, new, originality, paint-by-number, Promethean, simulacrum, and signature.<br><br>Any work considered to be an authentic example of the works of an artist, rather than a reproduction or imitation.
