Timeless portraits, old world sensibilities

Posted on

A series of painterly portraits with an Old World Style. From the Italian Renaissance through to post Second World War – Jack Savage attempt to take his subjects back in time. All of the models are from his hometown of Northampton, England, and he thinks this adds to the visual authenticity and stark realism of this moody kind of portraiture. Classical lighting set ups and techniques were closely adhered to here. By this he mean attempting to create in pictures, a small part of what Rembrandt and Caravaggio did so well in their masterful paintings.
