La pietà di Michelangelo
Acrylics on paper
About the work
[Regarding the Pietà] never think, rare sculptor or craftsman, to be able to add design or grace, nor with difficulty ever being able to finesse, cleanliness and to pierce the marble as artfully as Michelagnolo did, because he he sees in it all the value and power of art.
(Giorgio Vasari on Michelangelo’s Pietà)
In my representation I tried to capture the velvety touch of the great Master, thanks to the properties of the airbrush, highlighted with the contrast of the background painted with watercolor charcoal and inks.
