Cajun Crawfish a la Caravaggio
16x20, Acrylic & Casein on Canvas Panel

--Currently hangs in the collection of 
Annette L. Breaux

Louisiana Boiled Crawfish painted in the 17th Century Italian Style known as “chiaroscuro,” meaning literally the opposing forces of light (“chiaro”) & dark (“scuro”).   The historical Father of this style of painting was Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (kah-rah-vah’-gee-oh) -- who made strong  contrasts of dark & light a staple of his own painting—and hence, “Crawfish a la Caravaggio.” 

The Artist:  Dan Junot is a genuine Cajun of Acadian French ancestry by birth & a life-long resident of South Louisiana.  His award-winning compositions reflect (sometimes humorously, sometimes dramatically) the Creole & Cajun-French heritage of Terrebonne & Lafourche Parishes.  His subject matter includes the plants, animals, architecture & folk of his beloved bayou country.  A true Renaissance Man, now--being a retired mental health professional, certified hypnotherapist, university level voice coach, choral conductor & operatic soloist--Dan spends his time photographing his region & authoring books.  He is frequently engaged as a motivational speaker & Cajun humorist.
