Everyone loves Claude Manet.  I mean Claude Monet. Whatever. Beckman is not alone is confusing these two artists' names.  In keeping with his recent body of work, Beckman has digitally pasted his face onto the bodies of others in found photos, letting him vicariously live the lives of the two well-loved and popular artists.
