INSPIRED BY CARAVAGGIO | LOUISVILLE PHOTOGRAPHER


MAKING THE MOST OF QUARANTINE HAIR

GETTY MUSEUM'S BETWEEN QUARANTINE & ART CHALLENGE

I had so much fun creating an images inspired by Goya's Drowning Dog (click here) and Magritte's Son of Man (click hereearlier this week that I decided to create what may be the best one yet.

I give you Caravaggio's Medusa.  

Mark was more than happy to play along and leverage his "Quarantine hair" for the sake of art.  

Check out the video below on how the image was created.

The piece that inspired this image is the 1597 self portrait of Caravaggio himself depicted as the mythical Medusa head severed by Perseus (Click here to see the original).  The image is painted on canvas and presented as a commemoration shield the Medici Family. 

We were fortunate to see this piece in person a few years ago on our visit to the Uffizi Museum in Florence, Italy.  We particularly enjoyed the emotion displayed and certainly had fun recreating it again today.
