I've been reading a fascinating book called "The Newspaper in Art," which traces the long history of artists using it either as subject matter or as raw material. Although artists were incorporating images of "news" publications as early as the 16th century, the Impressionists were the ones who really went to town, painting all kinds of people reading papers in their daily life.
Paul Cezanne, The Artist's Father, 1866
Mary Cassatt, The Artist's Mother, 1878
The Cubists also loved newspapers, but they cut them up and pasted the pieces into their paintings as a clever way to achieve double meaning. The paper could represent a shape, and at the same time the newspaper story could reference an idea or event.
Pablo Picasso, Guitar and Wine Glass, 1912
I had a great time reading the book, which consisted of three separate sections, each written by a different commentator. One of the writers decided to wind up his section with a kind of miscellaneous discussion of how modern newspapers have been affected by art, which I thought was a kind of lame non sequitur that didn't really hold water, but I was getting to the end so I dutifully read it anyway....
... and was surprised to find the guy talking about my father!
