Promethus (After Ribera)
Charcoal on Paper
84" x 108" inches

This is a transcription of the Mythic figure Promethus after the painting by Jusepe De Ribera the great Spanish master of the 17th century. The painting which hangs in the Prado (Madrid), represents a powerful interpretation of the myth, that is a large scale masterpiece of painterly drama and realism, a metaphysical projection of emotive movement captured by the human form.
