Chasing Judith ~ Finding Caravaggio
I first glimpsed her in a photo of the hallway of the Princess Margaret Oakville Showhome 2015. I thought she was stunning. Imagine having a home where she is one of the first things you see coming through the door.
Through the magic of 3D Architecture, I too could (virtually) enjoy this fabulous Living/Dining Room as designed by Brian Gluckstein.
First order of business, track down that inspirational piece of art.
I thought it would be easy but then I saw it described as "Stock Photo" in the Source Guide. "Stock Photo" my eye! Apparently my search was going to be a bit more challenging.
Time to use some Google-fu.
My initial search for "woman orange classic painting" turned up a number of likely candidates including The Lute Player by Orazio Gentileschi. I'm no art expert but it seemed to me that I was going in the right direction as far as style & colour were concerned.
I also remembered Orazio was one of the Italian painters influenced by Caravaggio and I had been fortunate enough to actually see some of his work displayed at the National Gallery of Canada in the exhibit Caravaggio and His Followers in Rome.
