"Infamous" has two meanings "famous for a bad quality" and "not famous and unknown". Which of them is intended in the following context?
Art history is replete with artists who have parodied artworks, and we will continue to see parody as long as there are art icons and the human need to poke fun at them. Why is parody so appealing to artists? First, artists need to show admiration for works that are classics or famous. Other reasons may be to demonstrate their knowledge of art, to try to replicate an infamous work in a new way that pays homage to the work, and at the same time demonstrates their artistic skills through altering the image.
