This is an amazing artwork, first of all the technique is excelent, the colors are perfect and meaningful the figure of the face stands out from the black background and this is very significative because she stays in the dark looking at the window to the light where there is someone standing (I think might be the person she is entertaining you can see that by the silhouette and window in his eyes). She seems obbligated to do this, she doesnt like it and cryes. This piece brings out deep emotions and shows how a woman can feel in that situation.
This piece is very stunning to me. While I may not be that great an artist, and my words may mean nothing to you, but this piece has quite a bit of depth and I love it.... The way the meaning is portrayed leaves a little interpretation open but it also closes down on the imagination to direct you to what's important.
The way I see it, there can be a few interpretations. The one I decided best fit the piece, because of my own bias, about women in the world and how they are seen. I won't go in depth, but the piece seems to scream of injustice and the need to break out of a cycle. I thank you for making this piece!
I don't believe you absolutely must give credit, it's just nice to mention if you are obviously inspired by someone. Also, it's nice for the viewer if they are interested in the work and would like to see other work like it.
Yes i have seen Hussars work, and yes this piece is similar to "SALIVA" and "APNEA: Daddy's Girl" However to state that an artist must credit another when their own work is conveying a completely different feel and emotion as well as a distinct difference in style, is just silly.
The point of my previous analogy was that even if a piece is similar in technique and concept it does not require credit. if it was a carbon copy or a near carbon copy then yes i would say credit the original.
"Monet wasn't the only french impressionist" Never stated that he was, i did however state that he was one of the founders of the movement.
You painting a french impressionist piece doesn't mean you should credit Claude Monet, because it probably wouldn't resemble his work unless you planned it to, not to mention Monet wasn't the only french impressionist.. Have you seen Michael Hussar's work? There is no denying that this piece was greatly inspired by him. So your argument is rather apples and oranges I think.
