Today I would like to share 'La Tazza di Cioccolata' by Italian Baroque painter Enrico Albricci. Most of his output seems dedicated to depicting these strange, dwarf-like characters engaged into various activities. Here they appear to be preparing a cup of chocolate. I like how they are shown working together for this otherwise mundane task. The artist's use of light and shadow provide a dynamic to this scene. The combinations of hazy colors and crisp details give this work an appropriate dream-like, other-worldly quality.
With this entry I introduce you to the world of Albricci, where you may explore to activity of his little creations.
