Mid Week Peek at Garrett Vitanza's Rubens Master Copy Workshop

The two week Rubens master copy workshop at ARA, Boston began on Monday.

Instructor Garrett Vitanza has spent months researching the methods of the Flemish Baroque painter, Peter Paul Rubens (1577 - 1640). He started the workshop with a lecture on Monday morning, after which students got to work on one of three copies:

Portrait of a Man

Two Satyrs

Study of two Heads

Here are a few shots from the workshop (with more to come!).

A few closer in progress shots:
