Calling V (after Caravaggio)

About

A New York City native based in Portland, ME, Elise Ansel studied Visual Art and Comparative Literature at the Rhode Island School of Design and Brown University, and then earned an MFA in Visual Art from Southern Methodist University. Ansel reimagines renaissance and baroque masterpieces in her unique gestural vocabulary. Ansel has exhibited her work throughout the United States and Europe. Her paintings are currently touring the United Kingdom in the “Young Masters” exhibition, and were recently selected by Mel Kendrick for inclusion in the Artists Choose Artists exhibition at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, NY. Her work will appear in the Summer Exhibition 2015 at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. Held without interruption since 1769, the Summer Exhibition's earliest exhibitors included the likes of Reynolds, Constable and Turner. A full CV and list of exhibitions is available from the gallery on request. Ansel's painting "Calling V" is inspired by "The Calling of St. Mathew" by Caravaggio, depicting the moment at which Jesus Christ inspires Matthew to follow him. It was completed in 1599-1600 for the Contarelli Chapel in the church of the French congregation, San Luigi dei Francesi in Rome, where it remains today.
