About the Painting
Benvenuto Tisi. 1528. Oil on Panel.
Benvenuto Tisi was a Late-Renaissance-Mannerist Italian painter of the School of Ferrara. Garofalo’s career began attached to the court of the Duke d’Este. His early works have been described as “idyllic”, but they often conform to the elaborate conceits favored by the artistically refined Ferrarese court. His nickname, Garofalo, may derive from his habit of signing some works with a picture of a carnation.
About the Soundtrack
We used “The Church of Glass” theme from “Oscar and Lucinda” (1997) soundtrack by Thomas Newman.
Oscar and Lucinda is a 1997 British-Australian romanticdrama film directed by Gillian Armstrong and starring Cate Blanchett, Ralph Fiennes, Ciarán Hinds and Tom Wilkinson. It is based on the 1988 Booker Prize-winning novel Oscar and Lucinda by Peter Carey. In March 1998, the film was nominated at the Academy Awards for the Best Costume Design.
