Benjamín Domínguez (b. Chihuahua, Mexico 1942-) in the Neo-Baroque style, uses the complex iconography on the medieval and colonial paintings to represent a contemporary version of the same theme. With imagination and an extraordinary realism he portraits medieval mythological figures, variations on the painting "Arnolfi marriage" by Flemish painter Jan Van Eyck, cupboards and angels, mixing an intriguing past with a sensual and erotic present. LIMITED EDITION OF 1000.
