An image recently completed for Sprezzatura, a paraphrase of Antoine Watteaus “L’embarquement pour Cythere”.

The first image i recently made as a commission for coming web- magazine Sprezzatura, made by two boys who found me through this very blog (you can see their comments on earlier posts). The image will be published in full size by sprezzatura later (probabely in quite a long time). If you like the image and would really like to be notified if it becomes available as a print ( there’s been talk of it) just mail me at techteur@gmail.com and i’ll save your adress and notify you.

The next image commissioned by sprezzatura can be seen here soon, probabely this week.

The images have been made according to themes construed by me and the commisioners together, the theme of this one is a commentary on what a hospital designed by the french early eighteenth century artist Antoine Watteau might look like. As you can see, my interpretation of the theme is not very literal but rather symbolic, for more on that you’ll have to read their publication.
