 Over 2013-15 Victoria completed master studies of paintings by Sandro Botticelli, Jan Vermeer and Caravaggio in homage to these exquisite artists with two of the paintings below ‘after’ Vermeer depicted as rare archaeological ostracons. The paintings ‘after’ Caravaggio are master copies incorporating various aspects from different paintings. By completing master studies in this way, the finer details of composition, colour harmonies and the artist’s actual painting methods can be researched.
