Jordi Ribes Inviting You To Take Off Your Socks @ L21 Gallery, Islas Baleares, Spain
The explorations of Italian, Spanish, and Dutch Golden Age painters and their particular focus on creating dramatic light effects meant to intensify scenes of biblical, historical, and cultural significance led to the development of tenebrism and chiaroscuro, and enabled these artists to enhance the illusion of three-dimensionality. Works of art created in the 16th and 17th centuries not only set the path for 19th-century realism and impressionism, but they also permeated various forms of 20th-century and present-day visual arts, notably filmmaking, painting over photographs, and graphic design. The importance of those explorations is evident even in current 3D modeling software and the video games industry, where such a technical approach is still the core of the depiction of perspectives.
