Painters in the making by Giorgia Lupi, Simone Quadri, Gabriele Rossi, Davide Ciuffi, Federica Fragapane, Francesco Majno

This visualisation was inspired by an article we read in The New Yorker, in which Malcolm Gladwell tries to unravel rules underpinning age, creativity and genius (The New Yorker, October 20, 2008, Annals of Culture, “Why do we equate genius with precocity?”) comparing artists that scaled the pinnacle of their careers early and were young geniuses, like Picasso, with those like Cezanne who had to wait until their later years for their genius to reach full maturity.
