"I Vampiri: Lucrezia Borgia" is the title - the eighth in my series of paintings called "I Vampiri " (which is Italian for The Vampires) - a new line of paintings that feature vampire beauties inspired by Italian Baroque & Italian Renaissance themes and aesthetics (many of which I have been hired to create for my upcoming Vampire Tarot/Oracle Deck). This eighth painting is called "I Vampiri: Lucrezia Borgia" - the fascinating Lucrezia herself. I've taken her somewhat sinisterly-portrayed character a bit further by incorporating vampiric elements. I love her goblet (what's in there - blood? Poison? The cantarella?) You may of course recognize the 15th-16th Century portrait by Altobello Melone of Lucrezia's brother, Cesare (a rather interesting character himself...). I painted this piece for MegaCon 2011 where the original painting was sold, but I have prints available! My own original acrylic painting.
I bought this postcard on sale for 75% off. Even at regular price, which is $1.85, I think it is well worth it. The postcard is beautiful. It's shiny and the colors are gorgeous. I bought this for myself, just as a collection of this artist's work (since I can't afford to buy all of her real work!)
