This hardcover notebook features Kehinde Wiley’s 2013 painting Saint John the Baptist in the Wilderness, reimagined from Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio’s 1605 painting of the same name. Both the pose of Wiley’s model, as well as the background pattern (William Morris) were both sourced from the artistic traditions of Jamaica's former colonizer. Jamaica's brutal history of colonization, slavery, and forced migrations positions it as a perfect subject matter for Wiley’s methodical, role-reversing portraiture oeuvre. Ivory-colored paper (70g/m2, acid free Plain pages). Hardcover with elastic closure and rounded corners. Measures 6 x 8.25 x .5 in.Net proceeds from your purchase support the artist in residence program Black Rock Sénégal, founded by Wiley in 2019.
