Some of the original paintings are still available for purchase here.
for your office
If you like the pieces and want to decorate your office (or department walls) with them, there are prints, mugs, and various other forms of each piece available at my storefront. If you like them all, the Philosopher Portraits Calendars might be perfect for you. Large-scale posters of some of the pieces are available here.
using the images
If you'd like to use one of these images (for a conference poster, book cover, website, etc.,) please ask me. I am often happy to help, and will try to ensure that you have the appropriate file type for your needs. I do ask that the images be properly attributed.
Plato. Paired with Andy Warhol's screenprint style, since his fascination with the degradation of the image through screenprinting echoes Plato's analysis of the forms as imperfectly reflected in the material world.
Aristotle. Paired with DaVinci's sketchbook style, for their similarly exacting studies of nature.
Soren Kierkegaard, in the style of Roy Lichtenstein. This image pairing reflects the opening line of Kierkegaard's Sickness Unto Death, in which he defines 'the self' as a relation which relates itself to its own self.
Ruth Barcan Marcus. In the style of Roy Lichtenstein, an artist whose work is similarly focused on the analysis of a particular formula. Translated from symbolic modal logic, this reads "If everything is necessarily F, then necessarily, everything is F."
Ruth Barcan Marcus. In the style of Roy Lichtenstein, an artist whose work is similarly focused on the analysis of a particular formula. The image and formula are the converse of 'Formulaic v.1'.
WEB Du Bois. Paired with Aaron Douglas, for many reasons: their careers were closely connected, and both focused their work on the double-consciousness of Black Americans in a predominantly white society.
C.L. Stevenson, paired with Barnett Newman’s ‘Concord’, for their parallel interest in the logic of expressive forms.
