NEW YORK—Paula Cooper Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of 19th, 20th and 21st century works that explore the tradition of artists copying the work of other artists. These “after images” operate in multiple registers as they explore methods of artistic study, suggest unexpected trajectories of historical resonance, and pose questions about appropriation and originality. The exhibition will be on view from May 2nd through June 13th at 521 West 21st Street.

The exhibition will include works by Sophie Calle, Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Eugene Delacroix, Mark Di Suvero, Paul Gustave Doré, Michael Hurson, Bill Jensen, Jasper Johns, Louise Lawler, Sherrie Levine, Sol Lewitt, Roy Lichtenstein, Piet Mondrian, Claes Oldenburg & Coosje Van Bruggen, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Peter Schlesinger, Cindy Sherman, Rudolf Stengel, Bob Thompson, Cy Twombly, and Andy Warhol.
