These are the artists that I'm profiling in my essay. The essay question reads:

How have artists used techniques other than painting to challenge the norms established by modernism?

Well, I can't imagine Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock or Mark Rothko dressing up like this can you?

Looks like you are doing most interesting research for your essay. I have just finished my essay and hope to post all to the UK friday. The learning curve was a great ride but the writing was a slog. Wish you well with yours. Lesley
