The Art Historian is a portrait of Johann Joachim Winckelmann who died in the 1700's. The original to my reproduction was painted by Anton Mengs. I admit to having made this more impressionistic than the original and I have broadened the colors, darkened the darks and focused a lot more on the highlights. Some artistic license is something I allow myself when dedicating these works. This is also one of my personal favorites.
You will find these works in other galleries, but I also believe they deserve a gallery of their own in honor of the master's who taught me by the heritage they left to each of us. Many years ago I purchased the rights to print and/or paint from a select group of past Masters. In life, other than on internet, I have sold many of these as oil paintings and am only now deciding to release a few for purchase as prints, or merely for viewing pleasure. Many are freehand digitally painted, and others are oils, but I will not be releasing the original reference images I purchased as nothing of me went into those, and I see no honor or dedication in such. All took me over 100 hours each to faithfully reproduce to the very best of my ability; often with magnifying glass in hand. When studying, this was part of my fine art studies and for me, it is not only an honor to do, it has also been a massive and intensive learning curve. I hope you enjoy viewing these works reproduced by my hand in honor, and dedication, to past Masters who showed we artists to follow the light to fine art. Please contact me if you would like a reproduction work painted for you as I take commissions on a regular basis. I don't believe for one second I have done one of these Masters their due, but it was a most beautiful pleasure to try
