OIL AND INK: Prosperi Portraits
Featuring the works of Warren & Lucia Prosperi
"For the first time I can look at a print and say that gets to it... that captures the essence of my painting and I feel the viewer has and idea of what the original work is all about" - Warren Prosperi
Now you can see the entire collections of "The Prosperi Portraits" in one place and view an original oil painting in comparison to the reproduction.
Warren Prosperi is self-educated in the tradition of Optical Naturalism, which was developed by Caravaggio, perfected by the 17th century masters Hals and Velasquez, and continued by Zorn, Sargent and Sorolla. This tradition examines the nature of visual experience and the structure of an actual moment. It is the basis of how Warren and his wife, Lucia R Prosperi, approach portraiture: presenting a moment, which reflects the character and environment of the subject.
