Montano

Montano painting

Montano

acrylic and graphite on paper, 107″ x 96″
Montano is a drawing from a floorplan only found in Giovanni Battista Montano’s sketchbooks. I can find no other visual reference for it.
Its looming figurative presence like a classical bust inspired me to draw it large. I very much imagined the viewpoints one would have walking into that building at any scale as I drew the shapes, columns and vaults of the plan.
