VAMPING: PART THREE
THE PROVISIONAL ADORATION
The third piece in a series of reinterpretations of classic works by masters.
Vamping: Part Three - The Provisional Adoration
Nativity with St. Francis and St. Lawrence
commonly referred to as The Adoration

Considered one of Caravaggio's best works, it is the most expensive stolen painting in history.

the painting and give voice to the sensual suggestions underlying the
Half fetish film, half
high art, half fun and half love letter to the master.
106 x 78 in. (268 x 197 cm.)
