s there a (famous) example of the same art work created by different painters? I mean the following situation: painter X starts a painting, painter Y continues the same painting, and painter Y finishes it. What is the final result? Mix of styles? The homogeneous work looking like a product of a single artist? Anything else?
Can you bring some specific link / name of the painting so that i can locate and look at this kind of art work.
Morning in a Pine Forest by Ivan Shishkin is a fairly famous example.
The Morning in a Pine Forest (Russian: Утро в сосновом лесу) is a painting by Russian artists Ivan Shishkin and Konstantin Savitsky. The bears were painted by Savitsky, but the art collector Pavel Tretyakov effaced his signature, stating that "from idea until performance, everything discloses the painting manner and creative method peculiar just to Shishkin", so the painting is now credited solely to Shishkin.
Historically, there are thousands of paintings that were painted by multiple artists. During renaissance and baroque, art and painting was more of a craft and trade than an expression of the artists’ message as it’s seen today. Artists had workshops with apprentices and assistants. Training included copying the master’s work and painting parts of or even the whole commissioned paintings. The goal was to create what you describe as “homogeneous”. As the signature (if existent) also didn’t necessarily mean authorship, but could also indicate origin (compare to stamps on porcelain) and the master’s approval, modern art historians still struggle with assigning an individual work to the actual creator. (See the Wikipedia article about Rembrandt under “Expert assessments”.)
If you are looking for a more recent collaboration where the individual artists’ contributions are very visible, I recommend you research the collaboration between Andy Warhol and Jean-Michael Basquiat in the 1980s.
