"Unfinished" is an accusation that has been hurled at the work of the Impressionists, Édouard Manet, Rembrandt van Rijn and many other artists. What constitutes a finished work of art, and who decides whether a piece is truly finished? Examine unfinished works by Rubens, Rembrandt and Honoré Daumier, and look for clues to their process and what constitutes a finished work.
