On Painting

This painting is a reproduction of  “I Bari”, by  Michelangelo Merisi, known as Il Caravaggio (1571-1610).

The reproduction of the famous canvas is a  private comission  painted for a couple who are very fond of Italian Baroque Painting. The commission proved to be a challenge, due to the outstanding quality of the original painting by  Il Caravaggio.

The research involved  along with the painting  process introduced me  to  the study of Italian Classic painters and Old Masters’ techniques, either from written sources and  original paintings by Il Caravaggio, located in Rome.
