Last weekend we had a series of events to mark the 100th anniversary of the the birth of a local artist, Renato Guttuso. One of these events took place in a recently restored villa and was staged by fashion students who designed dresses inspired by Guttuso's paintings. The dresses were modelled by dancers while the paintings were projected on the wall behind them, impossible to sketch on the night because of the dark (and smoke) but I enjoyed drawing from my photographs the day after.
This red dress was inspired by a portrait of the Artist's wife.
