Bad artists copy, Good artists steal. —Picasso

Good artists copy, Great artists steal. —Warhol

Is Herb Williams the world’s greatest art thief? Well, he might be, but who really cares? Taking direction from Picasso and Warhol, Williams has embarked on stealing from the best by recreating some of the world’s greatest classic paintings in his trademark crayon style. In many ways, the results are as compelling as the originals themselves. See for yourself when Williams unveils his latest work at the Rymer Gallery October 7 through 31.
