Italian Portraits

In 2014, the duo made a series using Italian backgrounds taken from their travels in Sicily, Rome and Venice. The idea was to digitally reinvent a Dutch 17th century landscape style. This was a style of Dutch painting where the artists most likely had never seen the landscape with their own eyes. In their unique way Franciscus & Franciscus used Italian archetypes after Carl Jung, and characters from the cinematographic works of Antonioni and Fellini.
