Pastiche is inspirational artistic work that mimes the places, techniques or motifs of other artists or periods. Unlike parody, pastiche celebrates, rather than mocks, the work it imitates. It's inspired by the spirit of a place or person or thing. One has a brush with foreign. It's a noun and a verb.
Noun: Artistic work in a style that imitates that of another work, artist, or period.
"The operetta is a pastiche of 18th century styles."
Verb: To imitate the style of an artist or work.
"Gauguin took himself to a Pacific island and pastiched the primitive art and people he found there."
Margaret Mead went to Samoa and wrote about it. Robert Louis Stevenson went to the South Seas, if only in his own mind, and sailed with pirates. Stephen Hawking assumed infinity. They went to all kinds of places, met all kinds of people, and they were changed forever-as were we.
