Ulisse Caputo - Before the Masked Ball



My response to today's work by Neopolitian painter Ulisse Caputo is based on its wild assortment of colors. Oh yes, the subject's pose and composition of this piece are admirable, but for me the intensity of those colors overwhelm all other elements in the painting. There's so much life and energy in this palette. Surely, if executed with a more natural colors, perhaps I wouldn't find myself so distracted from the subject herself. Might this be an example of style over substance? I imagine this approach used with several other my "ball" selections, and I must consider how they would elevate or reduce my emotional response to the subject.
