Portrait Of A Young Man

An acrylic painting exercise using the Munsell Grey Scale; there are actually ten tones between white and black in this painting. This is a science-fiction reboot of “Portrait of a young man in a red cap (Carlo Neroni)” by Rennnaissance painter, Jacopo Pontormo (1529). The atrocities we commit at art school! The original oil painting is shown below. Carlo was an 18-year-old Florentine aristocrat who had recently made an advantageous marriage. The original is housed in the National Gallery in London
