Mug Shots-Renaissance & Modern. May 2014. I was artist in residence in the library of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts during May 2014. While looking for interesting images to work from, I found Portrait of a Young Man by Baldassare Estense (15th Cent.) and decided to pair it with a more modern mug shot from gangster era America. His resemblance to Clyde Barrow struck me. The main difference between a Renaissance aristocrat and a modern gangster? Posture.
