Ep 27 — Helene Knoop on Copying Masterworks in Italy and the Importance of Clichés and Androgynity

After studying with Odd Nerdrum in the early 2000s, Knoop devoted her time to the frescoes of Pompeii and Antique sculptures. Spending a year in Italy, she copied masterworks in public collections, and shares her experiences.

She talks about the importance of androgyny, clichés – and why you should paint self-portraits.

This conversation was hosted by Jan-Ove Tuv, and was produced by Bork S. Nerdrum, with assistance from Sebastian Salvo and Cassander Straumsgaard.
The centerpiece was the painting “Clio” by Helene Knoop.
