Baton Rouge, LA
There are many different types and styles represented in the history of art, but the striving to make an image true to life is among the most enduring. The highly detailed, realistic drawings and paintings of the Old Masters, such as those by da Vinci, Tintoretto, Raphael, Vermeer, and Goya, have long been a source of inspiration for artists. Titled Contemporary Old Masters, this selection of paintings by a group of renowned American artists takes a glance at how artists today are responding to Old Master traditions.
