Beccafumi Master Copy

Class of: 2024

Major: Illustration BFA

Medium: Oil paint

Faculty: Margaret Krug

Prompt: The assignment was to create a copy of a section of a master painting, from the options provided, using oil paint.

The painting I chose to copy is ‘Head of a Bearded Man in Pro le’ (1527-38) by Domenico Beccafumi, an Italian painter. In class, we learned the methods of oil painting used by the painters, such as creating an underpainting and working in layers of color, which helped me create my copy much more smoothly.
