Each of these pictures is a take on a world-famous painting, in styles ranging from pre-Raphaelite to art deco. The works of art have been re-created down to the temperamental skies of Giorgione’s Sleeping Venus, or the bold daubs of a de Lempicka portrait. But they have also been ingeniously updated. The women who boldly posed are all amateurs from all walks of life and of a wide age range – they all did it unpaid for art’s sake.
This is not a guide book, it is more of an invitation to visit an area of Central Italy, Northern Latium, Southern Tuscany and Western Umbria, known since Roman times as Tuscia. It would also serve as a delightful souvenir for anyone who has visited the area.
