About In the Company of Masters

I founded In the Company of Masters because I feel that connections between masters are often underappreciated. Pablo Picasso alone wouldn't have started cubism and neither would have Georges Braque. But together, through a combination of cooperation and competition, the two men managed to pull it off. We try to spot those connections whereever they are, keeping in mind that painters can collaborate with writers, photographers or even scientists.

Connections would not exist without masters, which is why I've started by creating lots of those. My goal is to have a few thousand in the coming months. Creating a master is easy. Most of the information comes from wikipedia (and is credited as such). Connections are a bit more difficult, as there is less relevant material online. But don't be shy: create some, even short ones; other members will then elaborate on them, add pictures and videos. No contribution is too small!

If you would like to help, by curating an entire section or by editing other members' work, please contact antoine.
