Ugolino and His Sons by Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux

18"x24"

This was my study for the last 3 weeks, with enough hours spent yesterday for another 2 weeks of work. I saw this at the MET in New York, about 1 year ago, and was blown away. Art of this complexity was a huge factor in cementing my interest in the arts. It was a pleasure to pour over its every detail, and still, even after weeks, know that I have only scratched its surface.
