    Artist study other artist to see why they have a technique and where they get it. Diff artist paint, do work, differently. Studying Art History, shows you how they started, how they got their ideas, styles., etc.

    i think what u r trying to say is that people study Leonardo Da Vinci. i can't think of any artist nowadays studying Leonardo Da Vinci and so on, maybe they studied in high school or in college but certainly not when they're artist themselves. Maybe Michelangelo but certainly not Da Vinci. It seems too boring & cliche for an artist nowadays to study the work of Leonardo Da Vinci.
