Franciscus & Franciscus

Italian portraits

In 2014, the duo made a series using Italian backgrounds taken from their travels in Sicily, Rome, and Venice. The thought was to digitally reinvent a Dutch 17th-century landscape style. This was a style of Dutch painting where the artist most likely had never seen the landscape with his own eyes. In their unique way, Franciscus & Franciscus used Italian archetypes after Carl Jung and characters from the cinematographic works of Antonioni and Fellini.

The works are available as a Lambda print;

  • 30 x 40 cm (in an edition of 5)
  • 45 x 60 cm (in an edition of 5)
  • 90 x 120 cm (in an edition of 3)
