From Darkness to Light

Painting by Agostino Arrivabene (1)

Italian artist Agostino Arrivabene has many beautiful paintings that it is challenging to choose a small selection to be featured here. His work reminisces art from the 17th century, i.e. showing a characteristic trait such as a dramatic spotlit against a dark background. His art piece “Ruah” (at top) has a wonderful texture to it, Arrivabene used oil paint and gold leaf on wood.
