From the Paper:

"A story can be started many ways. Some writers only need a little inspiration to come up with a fantastic work of fiction. A.S. Byatt's inspiration for "Art Work" came from a piece of art by Henry Matisse. She actually begins her story by describing this painting and then expanding to build a story around it. As the story progresses, the reader will get a feeling that Byatt holds much importance to color. She goes to great lengths to be sure to describe the exact color of everything. Also to be discerned from this story is Byatt's view on what makes an artist and her definition of what is truly art."
