Caravaggio (1571-1610) is for sure a star and one of the most contradictory and scandal artists. His innovative artistry is recognized as the bridge between the Mannerist style typified by Michelangelo Buonarroti, Agnolo Bronzino, and Titian of the High Renaissance and the Baroque splendor of Rubens and Rembrandt. His paintings and persona have entered popular culture, his portrait and two of his works were featured on the old 100,000 lire banknote of Italy.

Still Life with a Basket of Fruit (1601) is one of the most famous painting by Caravaggio. And we will try to copy a fragment with you in acrylic. Not the same as oil, but will look nice anyways. No experience necessary. You will be guided step-by-step by Elena Nahum Leroy.
