Annuario dell’Archivio di Stato di Milano

Serigraphy inspired by the testament of the painter Luca Riva (1624), included in the 2020 Yearbook of the State Archive of Milan.

Luca Riva, who was both deaf and mute, used ink drawings to convey his intentions regarding the distribution of his inheritance. The drawing I have reinterpreted is specifically dedicated to his nephew, Giulio Riva, albeit with a reduced share compared to what would have been originally intended, due to his excessive involvement in gambling.
