I was recently at the Norton Simon Gallery near Los Angeles and noticed something interesting. This is a good example of “sampling” in the art world. This 1897 painting, Pierre Renoir’s “Yvonne and Christine Lerolle at the Piano”, features two paintings by other artists in the background. The one on the right is a painting of ballerinas by Degas. Henri Lerolle owned the Degas painting and apparently Renoir incorporated it into the background when painting the portrait of Lerolle’s daughters.
