My Masaccio Expulsion Of Adam And Eve
Painting - Oil On Canvas
I am a self-taught artist and this is one of my very early paintings (see My Miro, which was my very first painting). I learned by copying paintings and this was my first attempt at painting the human figure. I used a print in an art book as my reference. Masaccio (1401) was among the first to paint people who looked real as opposed to the static figures seen earlier in religious paintings; he painted before Michelangelo and was a great influence on him and others to follow. He has been called "the true father of the renaissance artists."The original fresco is in the church of Santa Maria del Carmine just outside Florence, Italy. Many years after painting this I went on a quest to see the original. The painting had undergone a restoration and the fig leafs had been removed! I had quite a laugh.
