This is a combination of two professional tennis players, Juan Martin Del Potro and Roger Federer. The main body is Roger Federer. The face is Juan Martin Del Potro and the tennis racket is Del Potro's. In order to combine the pictures had to cut out Del Potro's face and his racket and resize them to fit the image of Federer. Also, I saturated Del Potro's face and desaturated Federer's neck and the rest of his skin.

I decreased the brightness and the contrast of the photograph. Then I used the "Curves" and "Levels" tool to adjust the blue in the photograph.

Lillian F. Schwartz

Lillian F. Schwartz was born in 1927. Her love of art began at an early age, where a limited budget influenced her to use simple objects such as, slate, mud and sticks to express herself. She was working as a nurse in Japan and caught Polio. The disease paralyzed her, but she ended up overcoming it and learned how to move her muscles enough to slowly draw again. She used pen and ink, as well as oils and acrylics and most of her artwork turned out dark and barren. She then moved onto creating plastic paintings, electron mobiles and plastic imagery using kinetic fluid. She eventually developed different programs and techniques that would create artwork that could be viewed as 2D or 3D without pixel shifting.

Schwartz used the art of Leonardo Da Vinci in a lot of her works. Her most famous image was Mona/Leo, which she created in 1987. In this piece she shows half the face of the Mona Lisa and the other half of the face is Leonardo Da Vinci. I find this piece of artwork very interesting because the two sides have similar characteristics and match up in the middle. I know that some people believe that the Mona Lisa is a self-portrait of Leonardo Da Vinci. Schwartz’s Mona/Leo shows a comparison of the Mona Lisa and Leonardo Da Vinci, leading me to believe that she believed that the Mona Lisa was depicted to be of Da Vinci.

I really like the concept and aesthetic quality of the artwork. I can tell that the Mona/Leo piece was created shows many structural similarities in the two faces and matched faces are done with a purpose. The different parts of the face are done to show alignment. The shadowing of the two backgrounds are even similar. I believe to address the point that the Mona Lisa was a self-portrait of Leonardo Da Vinci. I like how Lillian Schwartz used artwork to get her view across. This piece of artwork could be improved by not showing as much hair on the right side because it makes the artwork look unbalanced. The amount that Lillian Schwartz was forced to overcome really amazes me.
