Caravaggio Paintings - Our Caravaggio Art Reproductions
Caravaggio (1571 - 1610) whose real name was Michelangelo Merisi (he was named after the small town where he was brought up), truly was a magnificent artist. In the summer of 2010, the team of Fabulous Masterpieces spent three weeks touring Florence and Rome studying Caravaggio's paintings.
We actually have 2 artists who specialise in Caravaggio paintings. Sergei and Alex. Sergei has been painting professionally for over 16 years and is our top Caravaggio artist. Below is his art reproduction of Caravaggio's Head of Medusa. Interestingly enough Caravaggio's original painting is actually a wooden shield covered with painted canvas.
Caravaggio Paintings by Sergei
1. Caravaggio Paintings: Head of Medusa by Sergei for Fabulous Masterpieces
Art reproduction of Caravaggio's Head of Medusa by Fabulous Masterpieces, hand-painted in oils onto canvas. All our Caravaggio paintings are made-to-measure. This particular customer wanted Sergei to paint the Head of Medusa 60cm x 60cm. Price £395, which includes VAT and P&P.
2. Caravaggio Paintings: Love Victorious by Sergei for Fabulous Masterpieces
The reproduction below of Caravaggio's Love Victorious (the original Caravaggio painting is held in Berlin, Staatliche Museum) is another Caravaggio painting by Sergei. Those who believed that Caravaggio was a homosexual interpret the figure of Love in an erotic vein: the painter's "favourite" must have posed for him with complacent licentiousness. As a matter of fact, the splayed legs hark back to a symbolic code also used by Michelangelo to signify resurrection, victory and triumph.
3. Caravaggio Paintings: The Betrayal of Christ by Sergei for Fabulous Masterpieces
It may not be the happiest of subject matters, where Caravaggio focuses on the culminating moment of Judas' betrayal but it's just so wonderfully painted that you can't help but stop and admire it.
Caravaggio Paintings by Alex
Our second artist who hand-paints Caravaggio paintings is Alex. Alex has been painting for 10 years and charges roughly around 35 - 40% less than Sergei whose work you've just seen above.
1. Caravaggio Paintings: Supper in Emmaus by Alex for Fabulous Masterpieces
This painting, the original, which is in our very own National
Gallery (London) unmistakably demonstrates Caravaggio's love for
symbolism. This disciple with his arms outstretched (as if to measure
space) recognizes his Lord and mimes in his gesture the shape of the
cross. The basket of fruit also contains grapes and pomegranates,
common symbols of Christ's martyrdom.
2. Caravaggio Paintings: Sacrifice of Isaac by Alex for Fabulous Masterpieces
The Sacrifice of Isaac was actually
commissioned for a customer who wanted it painted in its original
dimensions 104 cm × 135 cm (41 in × 53 in). That's quite a big
painting! Does Isaac look familiar? He has actually been identified as
Cecco Boneri who has appeared as a model in numerous Caravaggio
paintings. I think he also looks like the main figure in Caravaggio's Victorious Love painting above.
3. Caravaggio Paintings: Death of the Virgin by Alex for Fabulous Masterpieces
Another huge painting, the original dimensions measure 369 cm × 245 cm (145 in × 96 in).
Having seen photos of the previous commissions above, if you too would
like a quote for a Caravaggio painting from either Alex or Sergei (or
both!), please contact us.
As with all our commissions, our Caravaggio paintings are strictly made
to measure, so you can choose to have your oil replica painted to the
precise dimensions that is going to suit your wall space or existing
