Beatriz González has worked on numerous versions of works by great masters, from Vermeer's The Lacemaker to Pablo Picasso's Guernica, which she called Mural for a Socialist Factory. The artist has produced variations on Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Sandro Botticelli, Jean-Auguste Dominique Ingres, Jean-Francois Millet, Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin, Edgar Degas, Pierre-August Renoir, Georges Braque, and others. Two factors have led Beatriz González to work with famous works from the history of painting: her inability to compose and her admiration for artwork. The painter confesses to having a prejudiced vision of art history. Thus, for instance, the image of Botricelli's Birth of Venus emerges from some towel racks in the shape of a shell; from a striped sheet of MadeFlex, a still life by Braque; from a hairbrush with a circular mirror, a tondo by Raphael.
