Circle

The (Un)original to come under the hammer in week #2 is Circle, a hand painted circle executed in one swift movement. It was inspired by Giotto, one of the most influential artists of the Renaissance. When asked to demonstrate his painting skills to Pope Boniface VIII, who was looking to commission a great artist, instead of submitting a figurative drawing Giotto produced a perfectly executed hand-drawn circle.
