He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.

Corvi, an Italian Baroque painter, has given us a delicate rendered pean to the artist’s pursuit. The mask on her head represents the illusionistic qualities of art.

    It is always interesting to come to your blog, how do you find all these little known painters?

    On the BBC paintings site I found a painting by Corvi that I like even more, a portrait of a fellow painter:
