A brilliant, contemporary illustration - with clear
neo-classical overtones... can you say Chariscuro ?
Jacques-Louis David ? or perhaps Caravaggio ?
Caravaggio's novelty was a radical, almost sexual
naturalism which combined close physical observation
with a dramatic, even theatrical, approach to chiaroscuro,
the use of light and shadow. In Caravaggio's hands this
new style ( ... well it was new during the early 1600's )
was the vehicle for a radically authentic and moving sense of
power and sensuality.
