Lux Et Filum: A Contemporary Vision of Caravaggio by Monica Silva
Caravaggio was one of the leading artists during the Renaissance; he masterfully portrayed the society of his contemporaries through careful observation of the human state, both physical and emotional. He is known to have had a formative influence on the Baroque painting.
LUX ET FILUM, (Latin for Light And Canvas), is Monica Silva's interpretation of Caravaggio's paintings. It is not only inspired by his most famous works but reinvents them, by placing them at the center of a simple question: How would these same paintings be portrayed today?
