OIL ON CANVAS 73in x 54in, 2017
My camera didn't have enough megapixels to capture the little details but here are some close ups:
You might have noticed already that the paintings on the wall and ceiling are famous work or art. To break them down, the three main walls correlate to the three main movement in art (rather my favourite): Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo.
Middle Wall: Renaissance 14-15th Century
Artworks on this wall are from Renaissance era. Aside from the style of the art, I selected them by two more factors. With the exemption of The School of Athens by Raphael, they all have the theme of “mythology” and “love”.
Left Wall: Baroque 16-17th Century
This wall is decorated by Baroque paintings. Like the Renaissance wall, these Baroque paintings also have two theme in them, “religion” and “death”.
Right Wall: Rococo 17th Century
The most charming of all classical art style, the Rococo art decorates the wall on the right. Before Rococo era, religion, myth and politics are the major theme in art. Rococo art introduced a new genre of painting. That is without the divine and power. Pictures that shows daily life and portraits with no other purpose but to please its patron with pure beauty and pleasure.
The ceiling have religious theme like the Baroque wall but by Renaissance artists. The only significant part though is the arced wall which features Bosch’s Seven Deadly Sins and accompanied by unfinished Last Judgement by Michelangelo.
This took me a roughly 10 months to finished.
How many paintings can you name? How many artists do you recognize in the scene? Let me know in the comment!

Congratulations on the DD!
That is just absolutely stunning. Your entire gallery is to drool over but this is an amazing feat of work. I really like how you've turned the scene to both an artist's studio and an art gallery. I had just as fun looking at the paintings on the wall as looking at all the people
Apart from recognising some of the works, am I right to surmise that some of their creators (the painters) are milling about on the floor as well? The chap in a red robe just to the lower right bottom corner of "School of Athens" is suspiciously what you'd imagine DaVinci to look like.
