Conjuring Caravaggio

91cm x 122cm. Oil on canvas.

Caravaggio returned to John the Baptist many times, as a good excuse to capture the effects of harsh lighting contrasts against drapings and youthful skin. I made this copy of my favourite “John” (the original is in Kansas), with a few minor licenses taken.
