Caravaggio
"Caravaggio"

Again acrylic on newspaper. The piece is 10 x 5.75ft. The inspiration for this piece came from "The Musicians" by Caravaggio:

The Musicians
"The Musicians" 1595-96, oil on canvas, 36 x 46.5 in

This painting currently hangs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Caravaggio was an Italian painter whose revolutionary technique of tenebrism, or dramatic, selective illumination of form out of deep shadow, became a hallmark of Baroque painting. Scorning the traditional idealized interpretation of religious subjects, he took his models from the streets and painted them realistically. In this painting, the character to the immediate right of the lute player is a portrait of Caravaggio himself.
