Tribute Money(Second State) THE TRIBUTE MONEY after Titian. That is the "render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's" passage from the Gospel.




Tribute Money (third State)

Clockwise from the upper left, You can see that the Blouse has been roughed in in white and the flesh tones placed. In the second photo, a bright yellow transparent glaze followed after drying by a transparent crimson glaze, equalled a bright and lively red. the last photo shows more color applied to the flesh and the drapery.

The Painting was carried even further, but not photographed again. Why was it not finished? It came at the tail end of my copying of old masters and I was weary of the process. But it is nice to have the recorded sequence of the work.
