Giotto di Bondone – Self portrait series

Giotto di Bondone’s, altar painting – A study of illusion and reality, parody and humour

After producing this work, I was overcome with sense of purity, beauty and tranquility that spoke of a painter who sacrificed his entire being to his forcible faith. The reconstruction of the piece actually brought me to tears as it exemplified a man who was capable of grieving while he painted the depiction of Christ mourned after his death. This, I concede is what faith really represents, and what art should foretell. It is an example of the exasperating truth in what a man believes.
