Easter Card

(Chicago, Illinois) For my 2017 Easter Card, may I humble present my photograph of the Resurrection by Cecco del Caravaggio (Francesco Buoneri).  I meditate before it every time we visit the Art Institute Chicago because this altarpiece from 1619-20 exaggerates the bold contrast of light and dark and the realistic treatment of sacred figures that Caravaggio had introduced into Roman painting.  Buoneri, according to the Art Institute, was apparently one of Caravaggio’s closest followers.  Happy Easter!
