I chose the famous painting, attributed to Caravaggio, for the virtuosity of the artist in representing the dreamy face of the character in contemplation of his own beauty reflected in the water.
The painting was entirely made by me starting from the frame in soft wood on which I spread the linen suitably prepared with plaster for gilders and animal glue, plus other ingredients that belong to the tradition of the ancient masters, to complete with the pictorial part through powdered pigments and walnut oil.
This work allowed me to appreciate even more the work of this great Master who had so much part in my artistic education and in my way of conceiving the spirit, beauty and truth of art.
Considerable time has required the search for reliable but obviously inaccurate images with respect to the live view of the work . 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 after 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.
