Famous Art Pt. 3

Charon Ferrying the Shades By Pierre Subleyras - Famous Art - Handmade Oil Painting On Canvas


Pierre Subleyras understood the human body well. By using depth, light and shadow and precision to detail, the artist executed flawlessly this masterpiece. "Charon Ferrying the Shades features a nude male figure with his back turned against the spectator. From this point of view, we see the man's nakedness, the contours and shape of his body, the sculpted muscles, his weight. It's as though we are the passengers, the dead being carried across the afterlife, towards whatever place or hell is waiting for us. The dark shadows and redness of the background suggest some kind of hell, a place for the sinful souls.

This is an image of the famous artwork. We will hand paint a beautiful reproduction of this masterpiece in the size below.
