Caravaggio created this work in 1594, a complaint by the artist of one of the forms of the malpractice of the time. It was bought by one of his patrons, Cardinal Del Monte, and had great success among the Roman aristocracy so much that 50 replicas were taken.
Technically I made this unique work with an excellent linen canvas and a frame made of softwood that I built, on which I spread the mixture and the colors partly prepared by me with nut oil and pigments. Some powdered pigments are not easy to find due to their toxicity so I had to use analogues in the tube. All materials of excellent quality.
The painting took 3 months of work between documentation on the artist's technique during that period and the technical times of realization. The painting exceeds the frame, for reasons that I am willing to explain privately, so it can be enlarged upwards and sideways by a couple of cm, useful if it were necessary to adapt it to an existing frame. The price is in keeping with the excellent quality of the painting and you will rarely find a better bill and with these materials, you can easily verify it.
Considerable time has required the search for reliable but obviously inaccurate images with respect to the live view of the work preserved in Fort Worth. This aspect is common to anyone who does false copyright and the only way to overcome the problem is to receive a client who takes care of travel and various expenses ... and this is not enough because nobody is Caravaggio. However, we can get very close, but then you must be willing to spend the same.
On the other hand, if the work is done by a true artist, who does not make commercial copies, you can have an authentic painting of excellent workmanship with its true value destined to rise over time because it is pure painting, done with genuine attention to every single aspect, with a commitment that from honesty borders on passion.
The painting has a certificate of authenticity, is sold without a frame but will be shipped with careful packaging procedures. Live viewing is possible but travel expenses will not be at my expense.
If really interested I can consider and eventually accept purchase proposals, refrain from wasting time.
By law I accept the return within 14 days, but the costs of packing and shipping as always will be at your expense and the painting must be in the exact storage conditions with which it was sent by me.
